Here is the third panel in my Book of Color, A Study of Yellow.
Here are the supplies I played with.
Acrylic paints (heavy body, soft body and fluid) – All of these created a nice yellow with some variations. The Dairylide Yellow and Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue has more orange than yellow. I liked the Primary Yellow and Hansa Yellow Medium the best. I tried a new-to-me fluid paint from Golden called Hansa Yellow Opaque. I didn’t see a big difference in coverage, but then I only had yellow on the page. Perhaps it would have shown up as more opaque on a different background.
Daler Rowney and Liquitex Acrylics – I applied them with a paint brush. These are saturated colors. Water resistant.
Dylusion Spray – the color was called “Lemon Zest” and it sure looked like it.
Copic marker – It bled through the paper, color was nice though.
Sharpie Highlighter – love the pizazz the neon added.
Painters acrylic pens – same colors and coverage as the acrylic paints. The neon yellow matched the Sharpie Highlighter.
Faber Castell Gel Stick – beautiful yellow and draws very smooth. Added water with a brush to release and spread the color. Noticed that the areas where I applied this dry with a glossy-like finish.
Caran d’Arche neocolor II – love how these crayons glide on the paper and then release even more saturated color when water is applied.
Colored pencils (Blick, Prismacolor, Faber Castell – all are very similar in color. Noticed that they did not write well over the inked areas or over the Sharpie Highlighter. I think this is because of the wax in the pencils.
Koi watercolor – the yellow was very faint and didn’t show up over the other layers. This should be applied in the first layer.
Overall I made quite a few discoveries with this color and I like this panel. I’m looking forward to panel #4, Green. I wonder if the greens, being a secondary color, will be as difficult as the orange panel was. We’ll see.
