Old Holland New Masters Classic Acrylics - Quinacridone Magenta
Available in 60ml and 250ml
Professor Theo De Beer always had the idea of creating a range of Acrylic paints that would be the equivalent Old Holland Oils, the oldest oil paint range in the world in existence since the 17th Century. The professor aimed to replicate in acrylics the intense and lightfast colours the Old Masters loved with the oil paints. Hence the idea came to realization as New Masters to appeal to the modern generation of painters.
The acrylic range incorporates the same pigments used in the Old Holland Oils and Watercolours both highly regarded for their intensity and longevity. A high quality and expensive binder was sourced to provide the foundation for the new colour range which results in great adhesion, colour retention and excellent working properties. High pigment loadings used in conjunction with the binder ensure the unique characteristics of the individual pigments are accurately expressed. When dry the colours are a satin gloss finish and offer very little brush drag ensuring techniques as far apart as impasto to thin glazes can be achieved.
The additional characteristics of the New Masters range is the absence of fillers or extenders which all contribute to minimal colour shift from wet to dry. In this way, these paints mimic the Old Holland Oils which are regarded as the benchmark of oil paints around the world.
