The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 96
ISOINDOLINONE YELLOW DEEP
Holbein Isoindolinone Yellow Deep, besides being an unpronounceable name, is similar to Quinacridone Gold or other deep warm yellows that border on orange. According to the Holbein website, it is more finely ground than other brands of watercolor and made "without ox-gall, animal by-products or other dispersing agents." They state that these are the qualities that help their pigments deliver "color of unequaled intensity, purity" and create beautiful transparent washes while gaining to deep, clean darks.

“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.
