    I’ve tried a new subject. Basically one time thing. Not that I will paint something like this again. Found for myself new black. Mix of phthalo green and permanent rose pv19.

    This is lovely, I can see it as one illustration in a book for your child… 🙂

    Nice black. Really like the light giving sheen on the ladybug

    So cute. Keep in mind that pv19 is one of the most fugitive of all pigments. 😱

      Thanks for worning ! I never thought it was fugitive. I’ll still use it.  it seem to be exact color match for my White Nights carmine color and I quite like it. And I can’t mix this kind of transparent clean looking black/gray out of any other 2 paints I have.

    Wow Alex! Huge apologies for the misinformation. PV19 is actually one of the recommended replacements for the very fugitive PR83 in the old palette staple, alizarin crimson. The PV19 in my palette is Quinacridone Rose. It doesn’t make as black a black as alizarin crimson but I’ve found some great substitutes.

    One of my favorite blacks ( and most neutral ) is a mix of Sap Green and Windsor Violet. Thalo Green makes great blacks too, I just done like working with Thalo pigments.

      <p style=”text-align: left;”>Thank you for coming back to me with an update. I didn’t have time to double check I just believed it was not so permanent. I was wrong too. It’s not permanent rose it’s actually quinacridone rose pv 19. I just relied on my sift like memory:). I use to absolutely hate phthalos but on my travel  palette I have bunch of staining paints and got use to them. I think key is to use them thinly and mix colors pretty precise  otherwise they look like safety jackets:)</p>
