While it is possible to make earthy olive greens with Permanent Green Light, the color excels at making the brighter sorts of colors of the human world. Many of these colors are difficult to make with alternative greens. Lovely soft pastel greens can be made with Australian Ghost Gum and slightly brighter apple greens are made with Naples Yellow Light, Nickel Titanate, or Cadmium Yellow Light. Australian Sienna and Burnt Sienna both make olive greens that is good for painting foliage and a mixture with Raw Umber can make a dark green much like Hooker’s Green, or if the artist already has Hooker’s Green in a tube he or she can mix Permanent Green Light into it and get a beautiful Brunswick Green. Town Hall Station in Sydney uses these sort of heritage green colors on steelwork around the station. Prussian Blue is another color that can be used with Permanent Green Light to make a deep Hooker’s Green color. Southern Ocean Blue, on the other hand makes delightful turquoise greens. Permanent Green Light is a unique color and so it is unique in the mixtures it makes as well.
