This blend of the organic pigments Arylide Yellow and Phthalo Green to fill the gap previously occupied by the Lead Chromate Greens, long discontinued by manufacturers because of their tendencies to darken or react with other paints. This paint differs from them not only in being a permanent Lake, but also in sheer power. A fruity, shouty, tropical green with exotic undertones, it almost fluoresces on its own, and cuts right into mixes to reveal light sappy yellows.

An unintense blue green which nevertheless is valuable in influencing low hues and blacks. Little tint power in higher keyed mixes, but has been described as the one colour that captures the foliage of English landscape.
Colour index number Pbr 7. It is a natural earth from Italy. Italian Green Umber dries very quickly.
The romantic, earthy colour is ground in linseed oil. It is an inorganic pigment especially chosen for its deep green warm semitransparent undertone. It is ideal for Plein Air painters to create rich earthy greens for their landscapes. Portrait artists will appreciate the paints’ ability to help an artist achieve many effects, for example shadows. The handling of the oil paint is smooth and consistent.

Permanent or “ Victoria” Green was the generic name given by 19th century English Manufacturers to a mid green, slightly bluish in undertones, made from a variety of blends. This paint combines Arylide Yellow and Yellow Shade Phthalo Green to give a very rich, earthy hue in Zinc and Titanium Whites. Much stronger than Terre Verte, it sometimes fulfils the same role in providing reflex tones for portraiture and figure painting.
