Jane’s grey came about

Jane’s grey came about because she was mixing it in large quantities as a convenience color for her students. She asked Daniel Smith to make it and eventually they did. She does not get compensation for sales. Her Ultimate mixing palette includes both burnt Sienna and ultramarine and they make a beautiful range of colors with some color separation which can also be just what you want. However, if you do not want separation, Jane’s Grey is value-added as Daniel Smith has formulated it to minimize separation. Not all burnt Sienna formulations create the same greys. Jane Blundell has performed many services to the community for years, freely available on her website, and I think it’s great DS has named a grey and now 2 blacks she loves after her. They are very useful and save paint and palette space when outdoors - or in the studio.
