Sennelier is only good for one color, PigmentRed-122. I know you don't make your own paints so go with PR122. Each color has it's own number, no brand will mess with the ASTA standard.

As far as transparent yellow is concerned, I like Old Holland's transparent yellow orange side for a bright yellow, brown side is good for location work.

So...how did this story end?  I am searching for a PR122 in oils.  In looking at the online color charts the colors really vary.  It seems that is the case in many of the paint manufactures with a number of paints on the color wheel.  I picked up a Gamblin, but it doesn't look quite right.  I was looking for Bellini Lemon Yellow.  Also do you have any alternatives to the Cad. Yellows?  I have them to use for now, but wanted to know what I might get in the future.

Thanks, Angelica

Hi Rosemary,
I sent this letter to Sennelier just now.

Hello Sennelier,

I called,
Erika Chambers
T. 800.332.4660 EXT.11
F. 800.299.3113
Email: echambers@savoirfaire.com I asked to buy Quinacridone Magenta
PR:122 and the color that looks like Opera shown in a photo on this page.
I asked for the ingredients of the Opera looking color to match it to Opera and she sent me this page,
A Pigments all colours excepted # 108 119 549 551 555 821.pdf
which didn't help but it had your email address.

I have a local supplier with an account with Savior Faire where I placed my order for transparent Indian Yellow sub., I would like to have the chemical components of this Indian Yellow.
PR122 Quinacridone Red (which I thought was called quinacridone magenta when I bought it last time from you) and phthalocyanine blue. Would you tell me if the PB:15 is yellow/side or blue/side.

I recommend pigments on my website,
and would like to have correct information.

It is going to be great to have one company supplying the three primary transparent dry pigments.
Thank you,
