I'm new to the forum and I live in Australia so I can't as yet order the Geneva paints. I have the option of buying the W&N paints suggested by DMP, but as I am already blowing my budget on all the other stuff I need to set up my studio I thought I would try and mix my own jars of paint using the SDM and old tubes of oil paint I have lying around.
The hundreds of forum posts I have just read (all very interesting) have helped me work out which Ultra Marine, Burnt Umber and Aliz Crimson to choose from my collection. I have based this on their particular colour bias. I am starting to see that the DMP limited pallette maintains a general balance of neutrality as required for painting realism and so is designed to avoid colours that are too bright or to dull to work together in providing flexibility.
So my question is what temperature bias is W&N Cadmium Yellow Pale? ...i.e. what bias should I look for in choosing a yellow from my collection? I have here an R&G Chrome Yellow (quite warm) an Art Spectrum Cadmium Yellow (warmish) an Art Spectrum Cadmium Yellow Light ( a bit cool) and an R&G Lemon Yellow (quite cool, greenish tinge).
Any thoughts? Cheers,
