Nolan, if I added that dark neutral mix to some pure Cad. Yellow, it would give me Yellow Ochre is I aimed for that?
I can already see a couple minor things I need to go back over again.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Sometime...in the future I want to get a couple empty paint tubes (i ordered once but waited weeks for the backorder so canceled it) so I can mix a batch of neutral black. Nolan, is mixing Ultramrine (french) plus B.Umber ok to get a good neutral black?

should be fine, just check the colour like I showed to get the ratio correct
