Color Charts #3 Indian Yellow

I find this color very useful- a transparent warm yellow.

This was the first chart I did with a transparent as the main color. It was very evident that mixing 2 tranparents together look very different than mixing and opaque and a transparent or even 2 opaques. With 2 transparents it took a considerable amount of white to gain any covering power if desired. Or used without white it fan give a warm glow.
 Also Indian Yellow allowed for an overall darker palette with the same color combinations than the other yellows from the past 2 days.

If this is your first visit to my blog, see Archives for other colors in this study( there will be 12 in all) and stay tuned for the upcoming color studies.
