Introducing Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colour sticks – the ultimate drawing and painting tool.
Dedicated to providing artists with new ways to explore their creativity, the Professional Water Colour sticks are one of our latest innovations, offering the same exceptional colour performance as Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colours in a stick for increased versatility.
Adding a unique dimension to art work, the colour can be applied dry and directly onto paper like a pencil, then wet with water to create stunning, soft water colour washes — even years later. The sticks provide you with the flexibility to alter or add fresh layers to your work free of constraints.
“The ability to be able to draw a picture with greater control and precision, add water and then watch the colour melt into a soft yet vibrant water colour painting is magical.” – Debbie Bryan, water colour artist
The Professional Water Colour sticks can be used with Winsor & Newton's Professional Water Colour range and with watercolour brushes for painting outdoors, in a studio setting or on-the-go. Using the same professional grade pigments as Professional Water Colour tubes and pans, they produce vibrant colour both wet and dry, creating powerful drawings and paintings alike. Using lightfast pigments, the sticks provide permanence superior to that of dye-based equivalent colour.
Winsor & Newton Professional Water Colour Sticks are available loose in a spectrum of 48 brilliant colours and are fully intermixable with traditional water colour. They can also be used in conjunction with other forms of dry colour and with all Winsor & Newton Water Colour mediums, making them an excellent complement to various artistic techniques.
