Cinnabar Green - 50ml


This is an organic and warm green which leans towards yellow. Very fresh and bright in masstone.

Well suited to Landscape painting, it has a delicate luminosity from the lead in the recipe and provides a wide range of sunlit, green tints.

Cinnabar green was initially a very toxic and fugitive paint, based on copper arsenic. Mainly due to its poor light fast qualities it was replaced in the early 19th Century with a mix of Chrome yellow and Prussian blue, this particular paint is based on a recipe from the 19th Century and is composed of those two colours.

Historically authentic.

Top quality paint.

An excellent green very similar in hue to a Cadmium green light. This however is a better quality tube of paint than any Cadmium green I've used due to the lead content. It's more opaque & has better covering power & handling. Certainly a good choice for landscape & wildlife artists & a long with Rublevs blues & Chrome yellows you could mix a wide range of green hues.
