The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 95
AZO YELLOW (AUREOLIN)
M. Graham Azo Yellow, 018 is more transparent than Cadmium Yellow and more lightfast than Hansa Yellow according to their website. While it is a transparent pigment and staining, this strong warm yellow does not really granulate. I spent the morning in the tulip fields on my hands and knees looking at yellow tulips among others so of course, this yellow beauty, host to a couple of bugs, begged for some Azo yellow.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
