Gouache Color Mixes: Azo Yellow (PY151) M. Graham

Note: I didn’t start mixing my colors with Zinc White yet, which is why that line is blank. This post will be updated when I do.

Note: Titanium White is much warmer than shown here, it only looks blue because I had leftover blue paint on my brushes when mixing and it appeared that way. It is warmer and looks a bit more orange.

Hello everyone, I did a few gouache color mixing charts over the past several weeks so that I can become more familiar with my paints.

Azo Yellow is a very useful color for me and I am almost always using it in mixes. Whether it’s to make oranges, an assortment of greens/yellow-greens, or shifting the earth pigments, I go through Azo Yellow more than any other pigment. It’s tinting strength is not very strong and it is easily tainted with other colors.

My book is out! It compiles my drawings and journals from when I went to Seattle in April. Here is a link to the book or more information at my blog post here.
