If you love orange as a color, another pigment, perinone orange, is
also amazing. There's a clarity to it that cad. orange can't equal.
Some time ago I was asked to paint this very orange flower, and
nothing quite seemed to match, until I dug out the perinone. (I think
it's from Daniel Smith) Wow. The quinacridone are such useful
additions to the palette!!
I used the neutral tint for a recent commission, where I greyed out
some foliage to put the flowers into better focus. The neutral tint
handled beautifully. : )
