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 also significantly brighter to my eye.
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. It paints long like the other Rublev paints, and for me that is a first being used to buttery Cadmiums from other manufacturers.
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!
