Interesting fact: Indian Yellow, one of the colours available in this range, is a vibrant yellow pigment which has been used by artists such as Turner. Originally a colour created in India from the urine of cows exclusively fed on mango leaves, Winsor & Newton created an alternative closely resembling the original.
