This is the classic Cadmium Red oil paint.
It will be on most palettes and this is one of the best; beautiful, rich, powerful paint. A sparkling dollop of this on my palette is exactly what I love about paint, this is proper paint.
Of the cadmium reds this is cooler, plummier red which yields maroon hues and which can be used to make heavy, greenish blacks when added to the Phthalocyanine Green Lakes, to which it is approximately complimentary.
Pigment - PR 108.
Fast Drying. Opaque. Excellent Lightfastness. Low Oil Content.
