After tremendous harassment from customers, I blended this colour to satisfy their craving for a cheeky, fruity (dare one say girly?) luminous pink, which has intense presence notwithstanding the Zinc White constituent. Yes, I can confirm that women and flower painters love it, and some even use it in flesh passages. But I think it could well be characterized as “decorative”. The complementary vibrations it sets up with the greens, particularly Emerald Green, have to be witnessed to be believed. It forms a lean surface, and since the red is supplied by Quinacridone, a very permanent organic pigment, the undertones are bluish yet warm which are disclosed in further hues and mixes. A complete shocker even for ladies in Hawaii called Joanna!
