An earthy, warm, yellow-green, the yellow oxide mixes perfectly with chromium green to create this hue. It subtlely warms the somewhat cool chromium green.
Interestingly chromium green was a pigment used in US currency printing however I prefer the link in the name to the humble olive, rather than arguably the most destructive piece of paper ever created.
Rich in masstone, with a lovely shifting yellow green hue. It's tint power is middling and it produces really cracking greyish, green tints.
Good one for the landscape painters, it's going straight into my plein aire box.

Vert Olive has a gorgeous delicate soft green hue that could be applied to any genre of painting. Highly recommended! Am a great fan of Schaal's oil paint anyway. The order was packed effectively and swiftly delivered; the usual excellent service by James at Supreme Paint.
