Stoneground Paint Co. Sunflower Gouache
Stoneground Sunflower Gouache is a water-based media that dries to an opaque, matte finish. Sunflower is a vivid mid-yellow that has a slight green undertone when compared to Hansa Yellow. Useful for capturing the warm glow in landscapes and florals, it mixes with blue hues to create interesting and complex greens.
Artist Notes: Sunflower is a vibrant mid-yellow that can be used full strength for almost mustard hues or can be diluted for a more primary yellow.
Paint Maker’s Notes: Sunflower yellow is a combination of Hansa Yellow Light (PY 3) and Golden Ochre (PY 43).

Introducing Stoneground’s New LUCKY 13 Gouache Collection! This is our favourite launch to date. Thirteen jewel-inspired hues that are versatile, vibrant, and absolutely perfect for capturing late summer and autumn landscapes.
This release includes four new single pigment hues: Mars Yellow, Mars Red Light, and Mars Red Oxblood, and Nickel Titanium Yellow. Nine additional hues were also developed to supplement the original gouache collection. Sunflower, Clementine, Strawberry Fields, Beetroot Purple, Hellebore Purple, Peacock Blue, Maritime Pine, Green Gold, and Forest Floor.
Combine the new yellows (Nickel Titanium Yellow, Sunflower and Mars Yellow) with the newest purples (Beetroot and Hellebore) to create beautiful browns for fall foliage and dried leaves. Use Clementine for vibrant hits of orange in autumn botanicals, or combine it with Nickel Titanium Yellow for the perfect sunset glow in landscape paintings.
Stoneground Paint Co. creates their handmade gouache by combining the world’s finest pigments as well as premium French chalk with a binder made from water, Gum Arabic, and honey. Colours are easily mixed with one another and can be used interchangeably with Stoneground watercolour paint.
