Quinacridone Y, a very lightfast organic pigment, with strong bluish overtones which shine through if it is used as a glaze. When made into hues it presents a wonderful range of decadent, strong cool pinks which evoke rich satins. When added 50/50 to Ultramarine the results are a spectacular range of violets, which, when hued themselves, have an almost stain-glass quality. In mixes with yellow lakes the results are ranges of diaphanous, ambivalent pinks marvellous in certain flesh painting.
