Called Green In Landscape And Invisible Green In Mechanic Painting








It is to be noted that in producing these and other compound colours on
the palette or canvass, those mixtures will most conduce to the harmony
of the performance which are formed of pigments otherwise generally
employed in the picture. Thus, presuming aureolin to be the principal
yellow used, the same yellow should be chosen for compounding orange and
green, or for obtaining indirectly citrine, russet, and olive.

PERMANENT GREEN. PERMANENT PURPLE.

Oxide of Chromium, opaque. Mars Violet, true.
Oxide of Chromium, transparent. Purple Madder.
Veronese Green.
Viridian.
Emerald Green.
Scheele's Green.
Terre Verte.

As in the case of russet, there may be added to the two original
purples, mixtures composed of durable reds and blues. There are so many
ways of producing the tertiaries, that no difficulty can be found in
compounding them with stable pigments. Each tertiary may be represented
as follows:--

CITRINE = Orange + Green.
" = (Yellow + Red) + (Yellow + Blue.)
" = 2 Yellow + Red + Blue.

RUSSET = Orange + Purple.
" = (Yellow + Red) + (Red + Blue.)
" = 2 Red + Yellow + Blue.

OLIVE = Green + Purple.
" = (Yellow + Blue) + (Red + Blue.)
" = 2 Blue + Yellow + Red.

From the above equations, and by consulting the lists given of permanent
primary and secondary colours, the artist will at once see how easily
and safely he may vary his mode of compounding the tertiaries.
