Jane’s Grey* [New Colour!]
Jane’s Grey is a unique colour in the market. Most grays, whether Payne’s Gray, Neutral Tint or others, are made with a black pigment, and often phthalo blue is included. Artist Jane Blundell wanted a gray without the often-dulling effect of a black pigment, and without the staining effects of phthalo blue. She wanted a gray that was liftable and granulating to create the lovely look of stormy skies and softened shadows. It will also work as a neutral tint, darkening colours without changing them. Many artists mix ultramarine blue and burnt sienna as they work, but no one was making this gorgeous mix as a convenience colour, so she did. Initially she mixed it in individual pans and palettes but the demand from her students meant she started to make it in tubes.
Now it is available from DANIEL SMITH as a half pan in the Hand Poured Ultimate Mixing Watercolour Set. Using a gray that is made with palette colours maintains colour harmony in an artwork. Having it available ready made makes it easy to create rich darks with ease.
