This masterclass shows the different pinks Winsor and Newton offer in watercolour and in gouache. Here we learn a bit about the sourcing and development of pinks, where pigments orginate from and their properties. For example did you know that the now synthetic colour Carmine used to come from crushed beetles or that Rose Madder still comes from a plant root discovered by George Field? This video gives an insight into the fascinating world of colour and pigments.
