Winsor and Newton Galeria Acrylic are wonderfully affordable and yet impressive in their vibrancy and quality. Made with a high level of pigment and created opaque versions of some naturally transparent colours. You'll find their texture buttery enough for quick and easy coverage, but thick enough for brush marks to remain, should you want them. There are 60 magnificent colours to choose from
Payne's Gray is a dark blue grey made from a mixture of Ultramarine, Mars Black and sometimes Crimson. It was named after the 18th c. water-colourist William Payne who created the mixture and often recommended it to his students as an alternative to plain black.
