"Painted red" or "Painted in red", which is right?
Here is the sentence:
"Prisons are often painted in pink to calm down aggressive inmates."
I think the sentence is right. What I would like to know is whether we can say the same but without "in" in this sentence.
"Prisons are often painted pink to calm down aggressive inmates.".
Could you please let me know if there are any situations when one or the other is not possible. I mean when we cannot say "painted in pink" but need to say "painted pink" instead and vice versa.
So I understand we can use both then "painted in +colour" or "painted+colour". Is this correct?
