Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour 37ml Viridian
Winsor & Newton Artists' Oil Colour Viridian is a transparent emerald green color that is mixed with linseed oil and is an extremely permanent color with very good lightfastness. Named after the Latin for green 'viridis', it was first made in Paris by colorist Binet in 1838 as a replacement for the deadly Emerald Green.
Every tube of Artists' Oil Paint contains a calculated ratio of oil and pigment based on the quantity of oil in the tube. This varies from color to color because, just as some pigments need to be ground finer than others, they also need more, or less, oil to provide optimal performance.
Pigment Color Code: PG18
