A rare, special paint, with wonderful, transparent golden hues. In masstone a mid-value brown, very much like raw sienna. Spread thinly to appreciate it's very high transparency, it makes luminous golden hues, lovely and bright.
It's tints are creamy yellow/browns, it has reasonable body but not buttery.
This is my Rublev yellow earth paint, high chroma, luminous hues, handles really well. I thoroughly recommend it.
This particular pigment comes from near the river of Hrazdan in the Kotayk province of Armenia.
Pigment - Hrazdan Yellow, PR 102

In mass tone this looks like a dark yellow brown colour but when brushed out thinly it's real beauty shines through as a gorgeous golden yellow. Used as a glaze this really livens up other yellow Earths as well as greens & oranges. The quality of these paints is wonderful & NP's are to be commended for sourcing the best Pigments to make their stunning paints & their range & quality of Earth colours are unsurpassed, highly recommended.
