First, let’s talk about why I replaced Hansa Yellow Light with Medium. Hansa Yellow Light was way too bright for me. It’s practically neon yellow-green. As a result, I found my mixtures looked more artificial. So, I made the jump to Hansa Yellow Medium for my cool yellow.

Other cool yellow options are Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Light, Transparent Yellow, Nickel Azo Yellow, and as we discussed Hansa Yellow Light.

My Favorite Hansa Yellow Medium Mixtures

My favorite Hansa Yellow Medium mixtures mostly reside on the left page. Weirdly, Raw Umber Violet and Rose of Ultramarine are my faves. Of course, this is unexpected given we often avoid mixing complementary colors.

But, look at those browns! There is so much depth. These mixtures are perfect for pansies and other yellow or purple flowers with rich brown centers.

My other faves are Perylene Green Transparent Red Oxide and Quinacridone Rose. I think of Orange Crush soda with the Quinacridone Rose mixture.

Zentangle Patterns

The Zentangle patterns taught in this video are Oybay, ‘Nzeppel, Isochor, and Footlights. Whenever I can find the original source of the pattern, I provide a link to the artist’s page.

If you love the look of Zentangle, but prefer to stamp the images. Check out my Tangle Rounds Clear Stamps and Digital Stamps.
