So I finally made some painting and after my first experience with colour mixing I have a question.
How can I find the "right" colours to use if I’m not using Geneva paint (I’m situated in Czech Republic - Europe). I know that every colour leans to another colour, but how can I find where my colours are leaning? By leaning I mean, that usually cadmium yellow light might have some red already in it, or that ultramarine blue might have some red already in it. I want to mix and work from limited pallet, but I want to be able to mix all colours as Mark does with his Geneva paint.
The only oil colour brand I can easily buy is Czech brand Umton, they guarantee high quality comparable to other big brands, but how can I test it in regard of colour purity?
Here is manufacturers web page with their product portfolio:
Also which colour from these is closest to Alizarin Crimson? As I can’t find this in their list..
Thank you for advice.
