My Quinacridone Gold is made from nickel azo and quinacridone. It is organic, transparent, with an average drying time, and possesses excellent light fastness and high tint power.

I have been very patiently waiting for the right moment to reveal this new oil colour. It’s beautiful, perfect in every way, particularly for artists who like either glazing or just having a crazy time with colour.  You might find yourself in rehab to cure your addiction to it. Perhaps I should put a health warning on my tube Quinacridone Gold: Danger! Addictive!

I, myself am particularly fond of Quinacridone Gold. I often wonder what the Old Masters would have thought of the new, marvelous colours that we have today. Specifically, if I could go back in time and ask Mr. Turner what he would have thought of Quinacridone Gold. I would enjoy seeing how he could have used Quinacridone Gold in “The Fighting Temerarie” or one of his other glowing skies.
