    Thanks for this as I often wondered. I will not shy away from hues in the future.

    Every “hue” labeled paint I have seen always seems to be much less expensive than the same color name and brand without the “hue” label. That implies to me–right or wrong–that it is a color of lesser quality.
    It is very challenging to my college students–and me–to buy art supplies these days, with all the variations in price and quality, and with different companies sometimes giving different names to the same pigments.
    And don’t get me started on the mythical “list price”!!! Very deceiving.

    Thank you for stating a hue just means a color, it always has and always will. However, sometimes a pigment like the original Naples yellow is not available in its many hues, from green side to red side. There was a time it was available in six different hues and each hue had different tints. A high tint of the neutral color was very popular in Italy for portraits in the 1960′s. Today the color is not made from the antimony lead which is a very dense and fast drying lead, instead it is made from four different permanent pigments, PY151, PY42, PR101 and PW6. It will never have the original properties of antimony lead so it is called a hue. Hue meaning color.
