Mixing semi-opaque and cool, Silver Point is a cold silvery gray, but with an almost violet undertone.
Often reflecting blue in a painting when adjacent to warm earths or oranges, Silver Point's near perfect neutrality in both mass tone and tint enables it to read as a complement.
Expertly compounded from bright complements, including Cadmium Yellow, Silver Point is also found in the complete set of all eight grays, A Set of Color and Light. In collaboration with one of America's premier plein air painters, Scott L. Christensen.
