Permanent Rose watercolor is a pure transparent non-staining watercolor that has a reddish-pink color.

It is one of the “reds” in the transparent non-staining watercolor palette used primarily for the glazing technique.

Measured against a gray scale value finder, transparent non-staining watercolors are generally light in value ranging from 10% to a maximum of 70% value.

So, the colors in the transparent non-staining category are adequate for a complete palette, except for where darker passages require colors with values higher on the gray scale.

PAINT CHARACTERISTICS

Permanent Rose is redder and slightly darker than Rose Madder Genuine which has more blue in it.

Like other transparent non-staining watercolors, Permanent Rose can be lifted from a dampened watercolor paper without leaving a strong stain behind.

COLOR MIXING WITH PERMANENT ROSE WATERCOLOR

Mix Permanent Rose with Cobalt Blue to create delicate transparent violet colors.

Mix it with Hooker’s Green to create a beautiful transparent mid-value gray color.

Add Aureolin or New Gamboge to Permanent Rose to mix a variety of orange colors instead of using Cadmium Orange.

Permanent Rose can also be successfully mixed with watercolors in the semi-transparent non-staining category.

Mixed with semi-opaque or opaque colors, it will create a combination that is cleaner and more transparent than using only opaque colors.

Measured against a gray scale value finder, transparent non-staining watercolors are generally light in value ranging from 10% to a maximum of 70% value.

So, the colors in the transparent non-staining category are adequate for a complete palette, except for where darker passages require colors with values higher on the gray scale.

PAINT CHARACTERISTICS

Rose Madder Genuine, like other transparent non-staining watercolors, can be lifted from a dampened watercolor paper without leaving a strong stain behind.

Rose Madder Genuine is often used as a substitute for Alizarin Crimson because it is less intense, non-staining, and more permanent than Alizarin Crimson.

COLOR MIXING WITH ROSE MADDER GENUINE WATERCOLOR

Rose Madder Genuine mixed with Aureolin creates a glowing color substitute for Raw Sienna and Burnt Sienna watercolor.

It also makes beautiful, luminous washes when glazed or mixed with the other watercolors in the transparent non-staining category.

Rose Madder Genuine can also be successfully mixed with watercolors in the semi-transparent non-staining category.

Mixed with semi-opaque or opaque colors, it will create a combination that is cleaner and more transparent than using only opaque colors.

Winsor Yellow Watercolor Characteristics & Color Mixing

Winsor Yellow watercolor is a very strong staining semi-transparent yellow that is described as a warm yellow.

But, in Jim Kosvanec’s book Transparent Watercolor Wheel, he includes Winsor Yellow in his group of transparent staining watercolors and describes it as having a cool temperature.

Actually, a color’s temperature can be shifted from cool to warm and vice versa depending upon what color is placed next to it in a painting composition.

A warm color placed next to Winsor Yellow will make it appear cooler, and a cool color next to it makes appear warmer.

PAINT CHARACTERISTICS

Winsor Yellow is an intense, saturated color that will stain the fibers of the paper it’s applied to, as well as overpower other watercolors it’s mixed with.

It is often used as the first layer of a glaze before other color glazes are applied on watercolor paper.

COLOR MIXING WITH WINSOR YELLOW WATERCOLOR

When color mixing with Winsor Yellow, add it sparingly and gradually to another watercolor until the desired color mixture is reached.

As a transparent staining watercolor, it mixes well with other transparent staining watercolors.

But, it will slightly dull non-staining transparent and semi-transparent watercolors.

All transparent staining watercolors produce a less successive color mixture when mixed with semi-opaque and opaque watercolors which have coarser pigments that will stain and discolor.

PAINT CHARACTERISTICS

Aureolin appears grayed straight from the tube, but when water is added and the thinned paint is applied, the grayish effect disappears.

Aureolin does not overpaint with the same clarity it seems to have as a first wash.

COLOR MIXING WITH AUREOLIN WATERCOLOR

Aureolin mixes well with other transparent and semi-transparent watercolors.

Aureolin mixed with Rose Madder Genuine creates a glowing color substitute for Raw Sienna and Burnt Sienna watercolor.

Aureolin mixed with Winsor Blue creates a vibrant green.

For more interesting greens, mix Aureolin with Viridian or Winsor Green with a touch of Rose Madder Genuine added.

For a lighter, transparent green, mix Aureolin with Cobalt Blue.

Instead of using dull brown colors from the tube, create luminous browns by mixing Aureolin with Rose Madder Genuine and a touch of Viridian or Winsor Green added.
