Chroma is considering changes to the color range of Atelier Interactive and Archival Oils. For some colors, the pigments are no longer available. We also have received a number of requests for additions to the line, and in order to accommodate these requests, some less popular colors would be discontinued
Colors being considered for introduction include:
. Lemon Yellow
. Pyrrole Alizarine
. Yellow Green - highly saturated Australian Yellow Green or mid tone Chromium Green Yellow
. Quinacridone Orange- possibly with a burnt tinge
. Van Dyke Brown or Brown Earth
. Micaeous Oxide, a dark metallic grey. Many artists have asked for this to mix their own blends and particularly good for grounds
. Toning Grey Mid stays, but the mica component would be removed
Colors considered for removal or replacement:
. Permanent Brown Madder -the pigment supply is no longer available
. Permanent Alizarine - the pigment supply for this color is no longer available either
. Naples Yellow Reddish - one that can be easily mixed
. Orange - replacing it with Quinacridone Orange
. Toning Grey Yellowish and Toning Grey Pinkish - it is easy to mix replacements colors for these and they make way for the more interesting greens.
. Brown Black - to be replaced by Brown Earth or similar.
This means that there are only seven out of seventy five to be replaced or re-considered. Please add comments and suggestions, as we are always interested in feedback from users of our paints!
