I had high hopes that Perylene would be my out of the tube replacement for the Hooker Green & Payne's Grey combo I mix up. It is not. While I do enjoy this new color it does not have the same range of opacity to transparency that I like, meaning its lightest wash is still quite dark. However I think this will be a lovely background shade for some oystershell paintings & perhaps some salt|water ones as well. If you are in Virginia & want to see two salt|water paintings in person I am part of a show that opens at Roanoke College this evening. I am certain the event will contain some quality discussion & good music. Happy Friday Y'all!
