Vert Gamboge is made from the natural plant pigment Gamboge and the algae based pigment Spirulina. Both sustainable and natural pigments.
However most importantly combined they make really good paint! In masstone this is a mid to dark green with a yellowish leaning. It has a freshness and lightness to its colour.
It is gentle colour and you really don't need to add much white to create tints, too much and it becomes lost. It is a perfect complement to the cooler 'Kendal Green' in this range.
The tints are warm, grassy greens. Excellent.
