I am really disappointed with the Yellows made by Artistan. It is so stiff and when you mix medium + thinner it becomes slippery. I will be switching to Holbein Duo Aqua, I have seen very good things about it. Below is the latest Green Pepper, that I did, but man what a struggle, because I used the lemon yellow to make the greens. Sheesh!!!!...

As you can see in the studio photo below. I have made the pepper darker than it really is, because of the problems with yellow and I did not want to add any more yellow than I had to.


Size: 6x8
Time: 2 hours

Wow, I thought the shadow was a real shadow. Best of luck with the new paints. Curious to hear what you think of them.

Thanks WMG. I read some more reviews and bought Grumbacher MAX instead. I will let you know how it goes.
