A J Ludlow Ltd is a manufacturer of fine-art materials of unprecedented quality and brilliance. I formed the company because I saw the need to introduce a superior artists’ watercolour that was once again made in Britain.
A J Ludlow is a fine-art material brand that is a fusion of art and science, grounding itself in tradition, but mixing-in modern to create fine-art materials of unprecedented quality and technical excellence. The brand is the inspiration and creation of Dr Andrew Ludlow, an artist and chemist, whose dream was to produce a superior watercolour, with an intensity and brilliance of colour that artists would love using.

They are all based on single pigments and because they contain only pure pigment, the colours’ brightness, hue and transparency are uncompromised.
Each watercolour is manufactured in England with the best ingredients and finest pigments. The company ethos is to follow in the footsteps of the traditional Artists’ Colourmen, continuing the tradition of English colourmen of outstanding reputation and skill that dates back several centuries.
