The Watercolour Log Jane Blundell: Watercolour Comparisons 7 - Yellows I have posted about mid yellows in a primary triad palette, but here I will show comparisons of a full range of yellows, including warm and cool yellows. I will post about earth yellows separately. I have also added all these and more to my website so you can compare them here. You have the choice of opaque or transparent yellows, with the very popular cadmiums being more opaque. You also have the choice of single pigment and mixed pigment colours. I use single pigment colours where possible. Cool Yellows The cool yellow range includes many lemon yellows, cadmium light, hansa light and so on. Mid Yellows The mid range are yellows that are neither warm nor cool - they don't lean toward green or orange - but can be tinted with a blue to cool them or with a red to warm them.
The Color of Art Pigment Database, an Artists Paint and Pigments Reference The paint & pigment database color charts: The color tables are sorted by the Color Index generic name (sometimes referred to as "Colour Index International Generic Name" or "CI pigment name"), making it easy to look up the C.I. pigment name that is usually printed on the labels of most professional grade paints, pigments or other media. The Color Index is an internationally recognized standard of pigment classification. The Color Index generic name uses the pigments basic usage designation and hue plus the a unique pigment serial number (i.e. Pigment Red 102). To open a pigment color page simply use the navigation menu above and click on the color of interest. Pigments that are included in the database: Only single pigment artist paints or pigments will be listed in pigment charts, except in a few cases were a co-precipitated pigment or an intimate pigment mixture were given a distinct color index generic name or number.

Journal of ART in SOCIETY - Home Harvard’s Colorful Library Filled With 2,500 Pigments Collected from Around the World Photos courtesy Zak Jensen & Andrea Shea/WBUR The Harvard Art Museums, during renovation and expansion, showing the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies. Photo: Zak Jensen. The Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies at Harvard Art Museums is different than many other departments of its kind—its visible to the public. The Forbes pigment collection was started by its namesake—Straus Center founder and former Fogg Art Museum Director Edward Forbes who began the collection at the turn of the 20th century. Image provided by Andrea Shea/WBUR Forbes’ interest in pigments and preservation started with his purchase of the 14-century Madonna and Child with Saints, which he bought in 1899 and noticed that the painting was quickly deteriorating. “Every time he traveled he would bring things back with him,” Senior conservation scientist Narayan Khandekar told WBUR.
Dicas de Pintura: Passo Verniz? A principal função dos vernizes é proteger a pintura, depois de acabada, no entanto proporcionam também um acabamento diferenciado, brilhante ou semifosco, de acordo com o gosto do artista, além de restaurarem o frescor original das tintas. Neste post vamos falar dos vernizes para Pintura a Óleo. Classificam-se em: São produzidos com resina dura, criando uma película rígida e brilhante, que no caso das pinturas a óleo, já de início apresentam-se amarelados, escurecendo com o tempo. São produzidos com resina macia, não amarelecem e podem ser facilmente removíveis quando necessário. Os vernizes removíveis ainda sub-classificam-se em: VERNIZ DE RETOQUE ( RETOUCHING VARNISH ou VERNIS À RETOUCHER): como o próprio nome indica, usados para retocar as telas assim que se mostram secas, reavivando as cores. VERNIZ FINAL: Mais espesso e mais resistente que o verniz de retoque, é usado quando a pintura está completamente seca. Conhecendo os diversos vernizes: Confere à pintura um brilho vitrificado.
