Quinacridone Sienna - Quinacridone Sienna is the ultimate low-staining glazing pigment, certainly finer than any Burnt Sienna. For the traditional and purist watercolor painter, Quinacridone Sienna divides yellows from reds, falling on the orange line. Its place on the color chart makes Quinacridone Sienna a complement-free pigment, easy to modify without revealing a hidden gray. Quinacridone Sienna works especially well in damp under paintings overpainted with full-bodied pigments such as Indigo or Payne's Gray.
The fine clear Quinacridone particles collect and retreat, giving way to compressed pools surrounded by the premixed grays. Highly durable and extremely transparent, all the Quinacridone colors excel in vivid clarity and intensity. The Quinacridone family of colors (pronounced kwin ak' ri doan) are high-performance pigments with outstanding transparency and color intensity. Ranging from pink to purple and gold to sienna, they are lightfast with a clarity traditional pigments cannot match. These modern synthetic colors were created in the 1960s for use in automotive paints, where brilliance and lightfastness are essential.
