The Colour Red

 You'd think that Cadmium Red Deep Hue and Cadmium Red Deep would be the same but they are not!

I wanted to use the former to stain a canvas for my new painting 'Dreamtime' but was worried there wouldn't be enough so ordered some more. I was given the latter but it lacked the luminosity of the 'hue' and was £20 more. I'm still experimenting on preliminary canvases and could see the difference.

I got what I wanted eventually and you can't have too many reds.
