Re: Mixing a vivid green
How to mix a "vivid" green is an interesting request, actually.
Green is one of those colors whose chroma may actually exist in a mixture, rather than in a tubed form. I'm not positive about that, though, as some
"Thalo Greens" are rather intense, and pure.
A more pure form of Orange can be found in a tube, rather than mixing one yourself, as can a more pure form of Violet. However, although I may be wrong, I believe that a slightly higher chroma of Green can be obtained by mixing one from the two primary colors of Cyan, and Yellow.
My choices for such a Green mixture would be the following:
For Cyan: Thalo Blue (PB15), Any brand
For Yellow: Transparent Yellow (PY128), Winsor & Newton
These are both transparent colors, and they mix together to create an intensely dark, pure Green. When mixed with a bit of White, they burst into high chroma colors, that, when mixed together, create a high chroma Green.
