Right, I totally agree about opaque vs. transparent, I don't question that
at all. I never
use opaque pigments, unless they are the first layer. But my question is
how much of a difference is there between a semitransparent PY139 and a
transparent PY110, given the thinness of the gum layer and its suspension in
gum arabic, etc. etc.

I'll just have to go do a layer of each over a dark and find out. Thanks
for bearing with my copious questions.
