This painting tip might be called "Read the pigment list on the tube!" I'd been trying out different oil paint blues to see what they look like and how I might use them in painting. Among the colors I purchased were Winsor and Newton's Thalo Blue Winsor, W&N's Indigo, and Gamblin's Cerulean Blue Hue. Let me itemize the pigments:
- Winsor and Newton Thalo Blue: Copper Pthalocyanine
- Winsor and Newton Indigo: Copper Pthalocyanine + Carbon Black (Ivory Black)
- Gamblin Cerulean Hue: Copper Pthalocyanine + zinc oxide (zinc white)
