Recently, Winsor & Newton extended the range with new neon and metallic colours. These also have a water-based pigmented formula which is compatible with the rest of the range, so these vibrant and shimmering colours can be used with the other markers to expand your palette.
Promarkers are tools used by illustrators across a range of styles, from fashion illustration to children’s book illustrations and anime. They are well suited to the energetic and bold sketches of a fashion designer, where you might need to draw the same dress quickly in several colours and styles. Children’s illustrators enjoy the streak-free quality of the ink so they can use clean blocks of colour and simple shapes to accompany a narrative. And the fine bullet and chisel tips lend themselves to the edgy energetic quality of the characters in anime drawings.
Illustrator Joy Ting Charde uses Winsor & Newton Promarkers in her work and she says, ‘I love the way the Promarker Watercolours just glide across my paper. I also love that there is a variety of marks that you can make – fine to broad. So versatile!’ And, as for colour, mandala designer Baz Furnell loves a particular blue, ‘In the Promarkers, I really like the ‘Prussian’. It’s a unique mix of purple and blue is unlike anything I’ve seen in other marker sets.’
To support you in all your colour needs in a marker, the Promarker comes in 173 colours, Promarker Brush in 72 colours, Promarker Watercolour is provided in 36 colours and there are 6 colours in each of the Neon and Metallic ranges. They all work well together so you can make work that layers the markers over, or under, the others and explore the full range of effects in one drawing.
