Hi Masque, I adored your shady mix but didn't have two of the inks. I have Noodler's CMYK inks (courtesy of LindaMedley's enabling) which includes Noodler's bulletproof Black, Noodler's Yellow, and Noodler's Navajo Turquoise, so looked up the chromatography of 54th and Old Manhattan and noticed they contained a touch of yellow. I did some guessing from there.
I have to apologise for my iPhone 4 as it doesn't take true-to-colour photographs. The ink I see with my naked eye is very close to your wonderful photos as viewed on my iPad screen. (I became a student of your photographs, your ink recipe, and others' chromatography.
) Like you, I think Old Manhattan adds something to the shadiness that I couldn't quite get. This is what my camera could capture of the replica attempt.
To the natural eye, the ink shows that slight greeny tinge evident in your photos.
2.5mL Noodler's Navajo Turquoise
2 drops Noodler's Yellow
2 drops Noodler's Black (bulletproof)
Thanks for the inspiration leading to tonight's diversionary experiment
