Hansa Yellow

I just purchased a tube of Daniel Smith Hansa Yellow Medium (PY97) for a workshop I’m going to next week. So I decided to do a quick test sketch in my Canson XL mixed media sketchbook (also new).

Hansa Yellow is a very rich yellow and moves nicely when water is added. Plus, mixed with Ultramarine Blue, it produces a nice green (greens are always a challenge).

I already have nine other yellow pigments in my toolbox, so I’m hoping this is the last one I’ll need. It seems every instructor has their favourite. So far I like this one.

  1. MGraham Hansa Yellow Medium is the only yellow in my mix. I add in MGraham New gamboge for an orange.
