Selecting the right color pigments for the job
Do you know what to look for?
What about Opacity and Transparency? - Many artists will require their paint to perform in both these capacities. When the artist knows what pigments are used to manufacture the color, that knowledge will provide greater success when selecting one color over the other.
It is important to recognize that some pigments are opaque and others transparent by the nature of the pigment. Knowing the effects will greatly enhance the artist’s work.
He who wishes to become a master of color must see, feel, and experience each individual color in its endless combinations with all other colors. --Johannes Itten, 1888-1967
