    It's W&N Bright Red with a bit of green mixed into to it to kill the brightness.

    Thanks for the tip David that is useful to know, I wouldn't have thought of using the green apart from Viridian for shading.

    Best mix your own green from Cobalt Blue and Lemon Yellow as I know htese allow a flat/matt finish. All the greens in tubes will dry shiney.......................I hate shiney!!!!!!:mad:(y)

    Beautiful - a lovely figure. Skin tones are super, and the overall efffects are great.

    I often use W & N's Manganese Blue Hue to shade red - and boy does that work!

    You will definately have to drain the Blue onf exceass oil on a bit of card because it's well greasy. But it's not bad mate. I do use malmittel in combination with it as well which really helps. In fact I often use malmittel and swear by it.
