Cadmium Yellow Light - 50ml

We have run out of stock for this item.

Cadmium Yellow Light.

Powerful, dense, brightness.

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 a bit like Naples yellow in hue, the second tube image is more accurate.

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.

Treat will never look back!

Superb paint

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.
