I think I was a bit hasty in my judgement when I thought this yellow didn't mix good greens. I just painted a plant that has lots of leaves and the green (azo yellow + ultramarine) is very natural looking yet bright enough. (Posted on 10/09/2016)

A very good yellow if you want to paint yellow. Strong, bright, clean. But not as good for an all in one yellow to use as yellow + mixing greens and earths. The greens are quite strong and opaque (I used PB 60 & PB 29) and look like they've been mixed using lemon yellow, because azo yellow has very little warmth. Nothing wrong with strong&opaque if you like that but I prefer more transparent. Surprisingly, the earths are quite weak. They do not have any golden glow, and they look rather cool and bland. So the need for a golden yellow arises. I used Schmincke Pure yellow before and have to say I would have been wise to stick with it, it is beautiful on its own, and mixes glowing earths and transparent natural looking greens. Pair it with DS Lemon yellow and you don't need other yellows. (Posted on 31/08/2016)
