The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 97
PERMANENT YELLOW DEEP
Holbein's Permanent Yellow deep is made up of two pigments. PY74, Hansa Yellow, is considered superior to many others Hansa Yellows due to its finer particle size, the effect of which is its brilliance and transparency. It has high tinting strength. The second pigment Yellow 83, comes from a family of azo pigments called Diarylide. These yellow hued pigments were developed around 1940 and are a semi-opaque, somewhat staining, deep reddish yellow with good tinting strength, good lightfastness and permanence. However, it can fade in tints. Other Diarylide pigments are reported to have poor lightfastness, some completely fugitive.

“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.
