Naples Yellow is beautiful warm and balanced paint, created by Daniel Smith watercolors. I’ve decided after numerous purchases and experiments with other NY (Naples Yellow) colors that they were lacking in what I needed from my paints. Clarity, mixability, lightfastness, consistency.
A brief review on some of the experiments I’ve done using Naples Yellow, with a couple of blues on small Test Strips.
Its fun and fast.
Exploring and trying out a little bit of color mixing each day.
Five minutes is all it really ever takes. That, and just doing it each day.
Think, Long Term!!
Small, Quick Mixes
Every day you paint, does not need to be an epic journey towards…. That Glorious Masterpiece.
Its wonderful -and necessary – to have days of quick, short bursts of sheer color.
Nothing but color.
Short. And sweet.
“With absolutely. No. Pressure. Put on yourself whatsoever.”
Your fast little test strips of color mixing …do not... have to look like much at all!
All they need to do, is to get You to get your Paints Out!
