A mix of Aureolin (PY 40), Ultramarine Blue (PB 29), and Raw Umber (PBr 7).
A Very Good Lightfast, Low Staining, Granulating, Semi-Transparent pigment mix.
Well, sorry, folks, but as soon as I read that it has Aureolin in the mix, I knew I'd toss this one on the discard pile. Aureolin turns brown over time so what do you think this green will do over time? No, thanks, won't take the chance. Off it goes! (I wasn't that crazy about the color anyway.)
2. Perylene Green (Daniel Smith)
A single pigment, no mix, according to DS. However, the single pigment is PBk 31 which means it is a black pigment. Interesting...
Daniel Smith describes this as an Excellent Lightfast, Medium Staining, Non-granulating, Semi-Transparent single pigment.
Because this is a black mix that has gone to a deep, dark green, it makes gorgeous northwest forests, and it fades out to a misty, foggy, gray-green that is very nice. I think I'll keep this one in my To Use More Often pile. I could see doing some misty seascapes with this color.
So far I've covered 8 different tube greens made by Daniel Smith. For someone who is afraid of greens, rarely uses them, and doesn't really know how to use them, I sure have a lot of tube greens! Ah, the exuberance of youth when I first started painting and had to have every single color. Wait until you see some of the more exotic greens yet to come...
