Day 14: My Dark Golden Yellows

Today’s Diamine calendar color is Three Kings which is a standard golden yellow ink color. There appears to be a dark sheen on T’s swatch card.

Here’s my selection for today. Brandy Snap and Candle Light are from last year’s calendar.

I also included two swatches from Robert Oster to round out the range of underlying colors I was seeing from other swatches on social media.

I’ve narrowed it down to two swatches Brandy Snap and African Gold. My darker golden yellows. I see a combination of these two colors in Three Kings.

African Gold is another fave color of mine especially for sketching.

Three Kings reminds me of a dark golden mustard color. Just for fun I’ve included my Daniel Smith watercolor swatch Quinacridone Gold.

Ink swatches: Diamine Red Inkvent Brandy Snap and Candle Light. Robert Oster African Gold and Honey Bee.

Watercolor swatch: Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolor Quinacridone Gold
