What is the mixing complement for Winsor & Newton's Naples Yellow?

What is the mixing complement for Winsor & Newton's Naples Yellow?
I believe the formulation is PW6 (titanium white), PBr24 (chrome titanium oxide).

As a side note, I see that Handprint.com lists the Naples Yellow "hue" as being compromised of:
PY35 (cadmium zinc sulfide), PR101 (synthetic red iron oxide), PW4 (zinc oxide)

Re: What is the mixing complement for Winsor & Newton's Naples Yellow?

If you want an exact complement (one that will make a neutral gray or black) it'll take a neutral grey reference for visual comparison, and trial & error. But the complement will be approximately a blue-violet...somewhere between Ultramarine or Indanthrone Blue (PB60), and Dioxazine or Ultramarine Violet.

I agree with Patrick. No single tubed color is likely. You'll need to mingle a blue with a purple, violet, or red.

But to un-ask the question: If you are merely trying to get a darkened non-green variation of the Naples Yellow, as with shadow, maybe Raw Umber will help.

iI have gotten a good complement for another brand of Naples Yellow with ultramarine violet, and mixing it with ultramarine blue as expected gave a very green result. Winsor brand may or may not have a single tube color complement.
