Named after the artist who is said to have introduced it, Hookers Green was actually a hue color – a mixture of Prussian Blue and Gamboge. Later, a single pigment, Hookers, was developed. In creating our own Hookers hue, we carefully observed both of these examples to determine which properties of Hookers Green are of the most value to fine artists. Golden re-creates this color by blending Anthraquinone Blue with Nickle Azo Yellow and Quinacridone Magenta, which offers an almost black masstone with a rich blue green undertone. These qualities are key to landscape painting, making it easy to see why this hue is so desirable.
