Overall Experience
This ugly duckling is a real swan!
How would you describe the quality of this product?
When I first got this product I hated it--I even put a an "ugly" warning label on it so I wouldn't forget. Later, when desperate to capture the grey greens of summer, I got it out and was *amazed* to find that it makes fantastic mixes with other colors and really helps you get the dusty bleached greens of summer.
How did this product perform compared to your expectations?
Like it's chemical cousin Viridian, it's meant to be mixed with other colors. Try Quin Burnt Orange or Naples Yellow for some lovely colors that are hard to get elsewhere. Add some Ultramarine Violet and you've got some lovely dark grey-greens.
How would you describe the consistency?
This is not a transparent pigment--but give it a shot anyway.
How did you use this color in a painting?
For marsh grasses & oak trees of summer, mixed with various warm tones. Like viridian, it's an acquired taste, but once acquired, you can't live without it.
Was this product true to its value?
as much as any of the DS pigments are
Overall Experience
What was your overall experience with this product?
It's like viridian: disgusting at first, but after you spend time making mixes with it, you'll grow to rely on it. It's made it down to my 18-pan travel set, so that's something!
