Re: Gamblin Radiant Colors on your plein air palette
I've used these colors in the past. It is nice to just squeeze out those colors, right out of the tube, they always seem brighter straight from the tube than anything that I can mix!
From what I remember, they are all fairly cool colors, I know the yellow is hansa, and the green and blue is pthalo. The green, for example, ends up being close to pthalo green mixed with white, sort of chalky but brilliant.
Oh, I remember seeing a swatch test with radiant white, where it went yellow...
For landscape painting, I sometimes load my palette with a bunch of convenience colors... I really like what mixtures of Modiglianin Ochre, Emerald green and Kings blue by Senellier do.
Painting is fun, I say get them all! It's refreshing to experiment with new formats and colors, even if it puts the wind into your sails for just one painting, it'd be worth it.
Be sure to let us know how you like them, if you get them!
