FYI - I just started painting this today and ran into the green instead of brown problem. :tickedoff: I was using Cotman (Yes, I know I shouldn't, but my Mother always said waste not want not, so...I'll use it up.) ::) I have ordered a new good quality Cadmium Orange ( American Journey). I pulled it out and it immediately went to brown. ;D

The pigments listed on the tube are PY37 and PR108.

Thought you might like to know.

There is nothing wrong with Cotman paints....you just have to get used to the different variations in colours and mixing. I've been using them for the past 5 1/2 months. I normally us the W&N Artist grade. Even though made by the same manufacturer, the difference in colour is definately apparent.
When using different brands, be aware that even though a pigment may have the same name...the colour may not be. So when mixing colours along with Dennis you may not get the same result!  :D
Cheers, Val

Val, I agree that W/N paints are good.  O0 For years I have used their gouache to do lettering. I just wanted others to know about this, so they wouldn't be surprised if it happened to them.

I have been fiddling with this for almost a week and finally decided enough was enough. :doh: I like what happened and really enjoyed this lesson. While my peonies were blooming, I went out and took pictures for my files. I definitely will do more of these lovely plants.
