Cadmium Yellow Light, this is my perfect Cadmium Yellow. The swatch gives the appearance of leaning more towards green than the reality, it does lean that way but not quite as much as the image, it is like a Naples yellow in hue.
It is also significantly brighter to my eye, it's tints are vibrant, light, almost lemon yellows but a little warmer.
I generally use Cadmium Yellow to brighten and add 'punch' to mixes and find the midrange Cadmium Yellows lean too much towards orange this is perfect, being light but not leaning too much to green either. It is very highly saturated and is a powerful tinter of mixes. Plenty of body and quite dense in handling.
There is no denying the price is high however it is exceptional value due to the amount of pigment in this tube it will go a very long way.
Treat yourself...you will never look back!

Incredible amount of pigment in this paint with a very smooth texture. I couldn't wait to test it out so I did a little sketch of a lemon and I hardly had to use any of the paint. It is certainly not as green as the swatch above, I used some Mars black which obviously takes it very green in my image. Adrian Lloyd Art.
