Real Opposition Pigments
Make Neutral Darks

These six opposition colors are the basics of all dark shadow colors
when you don't use black pigment.

Cadmium Yellow Light and Cadmium Yellow Medium are opposite Ultramarine Blue.
Cadmium Orange is opposite Cobalt Blue. Burnt Sienna is opposite Cobalt Blue.
Opaque Cadmium Red Light or Dark are opposite Cyan which is called Thalo Blue.
Quinacridone Magenta Transparent (PR122) is opposite Thalo Green.
Purple and Yellow Green are opposite colors, Green Oxide Opaque is dark yellow-green.

These colors are opposite and complementary

Ultramarine Blue is opposite Yellow. 
In this visual artists color wheel Yellow darkens into a Burnt Umber hue with without a trace of green. 
Burnt Umber and Ultramarine Blue mix to a neutral dark that will make a neutral gray..
This is the foreground dark shadow colors in the morning. 
The tint of this mix is the color on the underside of clouds. 

In this line of colors across the colorwheel from yellow to blue we can find Cad Yellow, Indian Yellow Golden, Yellow Ocher, Indian Yellow Brown, Burnt Sienna,
Burnt Umber, a neutral dark in the middle goes through the crystal and comes out Ultramarine Blue Dark and Ultramarine Light.

This is the same spectrum of colors that these crystals show,
VESUVIANITE, Ca10Mg2Al4[SiO4]5[Si207]2[OH]4, H7, SG-3.3, 
Made of,
MAGNESIUM, can to go dark and opaque, or transparent, either way, it does it with flair. 
ALUMINUM, yellow, transparent, standard #1 [YYYY], and blue, transparent, standard #7 [MMCC], centering to neutral dark. The crystals are in the tetragonal system, some masses can be seen in the orange or cobalt azure range. By centering yellow to brown, the three analogous colors of this gem, yellow-green, yellow and orange go to brown. On the other side of this analogous crystal range is blue, blue crystals were found in Norway. Idiochromatic. 
****** and ******
CHRYSOBERLE, BeAl2O4, H8+, SG-3.74, orthorhombic crystal.
Made of,
BERYLLIUM, standard yellow centering to brown crystal. 
ALUMINUM, yellow is aluminum's home base, but color isn't really it's strong suite, it's the light tricks. 
The yellow "cat's eye" gem has an opposite color line of light inside, a pale ultramarine blue. Instead of just giving color as an element, aluminum has an array of light tricks to perform with, more than any other element.

Here is the pigment chip chart.

This is Yellow, Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue chip.

Opaque Cadmium Orange and Opaque Cobalt Blue make an opaque neutral dark.
It's not the darkest combination of colors making a neutral dark but it has the widest latitude.

Here are those pigment chips.

Burnt Sienna mixed with Ultramarine Blue make a Burnt Umber hue.

Adding a little more blue makes a neutral dark using Burnt Sienna.
Burnt Sienna is dark Cadmium Orange.

Burnt Sienna and Cobalt Blue make a neutral dark.
Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue make a neutral dark also.

Here is a pigments chip.

Opaque Cadmium Red Light or Dark and Transparent Cyan Thalo Blue mixed together will make a dark neutral color. Good for the shadow of a red tomato or any cyan colored object.
Venation Red Oxide is a darker Cadmium Red, it mixes into a neutral dark also.


In it's transparent mass state Thalo Cyan Blue has an Ultramarine Blue appearance.
It's drawdown would look like this.

It looks like this in the Beryl crystal.

BERYL, Be3Al2[Si03]6, H7.5,SG-2.7, hexagonal crystal system. 
BERYLLIUM element in Beryl crystal makes cyan and yellow, idiochromatic. 
ALUMINUM, yellow-orange, idiochromatic, 
IRON, green, yellow-green, yellow, orange, red, scarlet, magenta purple, blue, azure, cyan, turquoise, iron at it's best will display the whole spectrum in Beryl. Allochromatic. 
CHROMIUM, green standard, #11, [CCYY] and red, allochromatic. 
MANGANESE, red, allochromatic. 

Double elements in yellow #1,[YYYY], cyan #9,[CCCC], red #3, [YYMM], and green #11,[CCYY], all standard colors. Yellow [heliodor], magenta [morganite], cyan [aquamarine] and green [emerald]. 

ALUMINUM in beryl excepts a lot of foreign chromates, just as it does in the corundum and spodumene compounds, Here an aluminum light trick is found in the aquamarine, light cyan is seen from one direction and deep cyan from a 90 degree off angle.

These are the actual pigments.

This is W/N Phthalo Blue P.B.15:1, a red side cyan, it works but Grumbacher's PB:15 is truer.

Magenta Transparent, ( PR122 is best ) and Thalo Green are opposite colors. 
They make a lot of foreground darks in the early afternoon. It's a very dark medium dark.

These are the actual pigments.

Purple and Yellow Green are opposite colors. 
Transparent Purple and Opaque Green Oxide as the
dark yellow green make this combination a neutral dark. 

Here are the actual pigments mixed.

Purple transparent and yellow-green oxide are opposites. 
Yellow and green are split complements of purple.

Purple and green form the dark shadow colors in the distance.

This is a tint of Purple and Green.

The pigment chip.

Now when you see any local color in front of you will know
which pigment to shadow darken it with in the foreground.

It's all natural, it's all good. Yum.
