Hi Catherine,

These three little beauties have a wonderful translucent depth to them. The green is a beautiful rich colour. What colour green or mix is that Catherine?

I looked at your video where you were talking about Nickel Azo yellow and remarked how you loved it. Right on! This green on my screen looks like it may have Azo in the mix.

Wish I was in your neighbourhood where I could avail myself of your wonderful expertise.

Write a book Catherine - I'll buy one yesterday!!

Wow, thank you, Sherrill!

This series' ingredients, to be exact, are an initial layer of Dick Blick's brown acrylic, then various layers of Golden fluid acrylics in combinations of titanium white, nickel azo yellow (you're right), and raw umber. Together, somehow, they all make green!

There's a book in me somewhere, and I guarantee it will come out some day.
