Hmm, interesting, Tom. An interesting project!

I don't know what to say about the brownish tone in the yellow. As I
think I may have already said, in an extremely pale tint my M. Graham
PY110 looks tan by itself, but when the other colors join it, it takes
on a nice pale buttery yellow hue. In medium to strong concentrations it
looks and prints a pure medium yellow, and in very heavy concentration
it tends toward orange, but a deep bright orange rather than a brownish

I hope it's not the Daniel Smith PY110 that's turning your prints toward
brown, since I was planning to go to the Daniel Smith PY110 when my M.
Graham runs out.

Just to check: I'm looking at the rightmost gum print which has
yellowish brown areas on it; am I correct in understanding you to mean
that these areas, for example, should be less brown and more yellow?

I've forgotten; what are your other pigments again?
