Another Michael Harding oil colour with beautiful properties. As the steadfast mixing green of my palette, this colour yields stunning landscape greens when modified by the earth pigments and blues - from muted blue-green to Oxide of Chromium. When added to Titanium White (with a little Zinc White to retain its coolness) and a warm blue, such as Ultramarine, this green is great for modelling clouds in cool, greyish skies. With the same warm blue and a reddish earth, Cobalt Green Deep offers a range of versatile shades that are ideal for rendering the shadows in landscapes. I will now explore its uses in portrait painting, as a complementary of flesh hues; this green might prove to be a good replacement, albeit a cooler and more opaque one, for the usual Terre Verte as it has a higher tint power. I was initially tempted by the cheaper Phthalo Green Lake of the same range, but I'm pleased that I chose to pay the extra for this subtler and more traditional pigment. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
