Review by Alison Partridge
After sampling a few of Michael Harding's greens, namely Terre Verte and Cobalt Green, I decided to order the Sap Green to add a more opaque and yellowish green to my palette. In its raw state, it appears deep and rich with some yellow and grey undertones (much like the grey in Green Umber); however, as soon as you add an opaque white, like that of Titanium, it becomes a bluish green. I would, therefore, describe this colour as more of a Hooker's Green than a Sap Green. The problem can be remedied with a little Indian Yellow, or another deep, transparent yellow. Despite this issue, it's a very good generic green which can easily replace a more expensive oil colour like Viridian as a mixing green and can be modified to provide a range of greens, perfect for landscapes.
