Flake white might be a touch warmer. Have you played with mixing a little lemon to make it just a touch warmer - either white? I use Titanium for most of my whites. Or the premalba white (did I spell that right?)
I wouldn't call it a disaster! I agree that flake white is warmer. I use titanium because I like its thickness and opacity. I don't like zinc a lot because of its relative translucency and thinness.
Hi Judy,Thank you for stopping by and the info on the white paint. I will add some lemon yellow. I have been using Titanium for my whites. I read about the permalba white, don't know how to spell it, I will give that a try also. Once again thanks for taking the time to reply. Have a great day.BestJoan
Hi Karen, thank you. Yes I don't like zinc at all. Flake is warmer, and titanium is what I've been using. I will play with the flake white a little more and probably go back to titanium because of it's opacity. It took forever yesterday, just to build up the white to the tone I was looking for. Thanks for taking the time from your busy schedule to reply. You have a great day.RegardsJoan
Hi Joan. I can see the Petals falling offthat lovely Flower piece you have done,welldone. Thank you for the info` re` facebook.I shale look into that Joan. I had a great time at a place called Dungeness yesterday.I managed to do two 9x12 painings. I wasn`ttoo happy with the second one but will postthe other one soon. Thanks again Joan.Vic.
Joan, sorry, I left the T out of Paintings.The times I make mistakes is terrible. It mustbe the age thing.Vic.
Love those colors in the whites.
Hi Marian,Thank you for stopping by, and for the compliments on my whites. I was experimenting with 3 different whites and color combinations. Great fun.Best RegardsJoan
Hi, Just saw this, Joan...there are whites like Cremitz or Utrecht white that are good, too. I never use any white alone. I always tint with turquoise or magenta or lemon depending on the painting.For thicker pasty consistency in body, Daler Rowney is good. I have been experimenting with many brands and kinds. Permalba is too runny for my liking. Gamblin has a blended white that I find a good staple.
Hi Vic,Thank you for stopping by and the very kind words. Don't worry about the t never noticed.Glad you enjoyed your day plein air painting.The very bestJoan
Hi Cathyann,I appreciate the suggestions. I will order the Gamblin, it sounds perfect.Thank you again, have a great day.Joan
