Color Week 15

Chinese white: an opaque-white watercolor made from zinc-oxide pigment; “Chinese white” was the proprietary name given to zinc-white watercolor by the Winsor and Newton Company, which first introduced it in 1834. 

Art Institute of Chicago

My current watercolor class instructor frequently add a touch of chinese white when mixing a color to tone it down, and give a creamy consistency. A good tip.

In the theme of white: daffodils in morning sun.
