A perfect companion to the Primary Edition Set of 3 and a beautiful selection on its own! The Secondary Edition is remarkably versatile. Added to primary colors, you'll mix shades with greater tone consistency. Jewel hues complement one another, and also function as the other half of the color wheel.

Set includes 15ml tubes of the following colors:
  • Quinacridone Burnt Orange: Add to French Ultramarine sky washes to gray the blue mix and render a full value scale. Use Quinacridone Burnt Orange to modify Sap Green in landscapes to achieve rich, mossy greens that coordinate land with sky. Highly durable and extremely transparent, all the Quinacridone colors excel in vivid clarity and intensity.
  • Undersea Green: An artisan's favorite, this exciting medium to high staining green blends French Ultramarine with Quinacridone Gold. The inorganic, sedimentary French Ultramarine settles and granulates while the organic, transparent Quinacridone Gold floats into a golden halo. Concentrated, this will remind you of warm sea kelp. Apply with Moonglow, Ultramarines and Quinacridone mixtures to color-coordinate and lend atmosphere to various passages. Undersea Green is beautiful touched damp or dry brushed with Interference Gold. Use Undersea green into autumn leaf paintings.
  • Carbazole Violet: This slightly granular blue-violet is an intense, vibrant color with high-staining properties. A brush stroke of concentrated Carbazole Violet onto dry paper moves the pigment from black-violet to clear purple, and can invent an iris petal with each stroke. Add Indigo to Carbazole Violet, along with Quinacridone Rose or Anthraquinoid Red. Blot, squeegee and incise damp passages to created veins, variegated passages and highlights.

    Halloween-ey colors

    I hemmed and hawed on this one. I wanted Carbazole Violet and this was such a good deal if I could use both of the other colors. But I have several burnt orange colors, Burnt Sienna, Transparent Red Oxide, Lunar Earth. I then watched videos and realized that the Quinacridone Burnt Orange is very transparent and non-granulating. My passion for granulating colors has taken me too far in that direction and I needed a few that weren't granulating. The Undersea Green is also a color that could be mixed out of paints I own. However, I use it's pigments (Quinacridone Gold and French Ultramarine) a lot and it would be nice to have this mix readily available where I could add more blue or more yellow to tone it in whatever direction I want. And of course, this grouping is amazing in fall paintings. Burnt Orange, Green and Purple, all very spooky! I feel fortunate when I look at this set. But I love paints in general and squee at every tube, ha.
