A colour beloved by Rembrandt, all those stunning metallic highlights used this pigment.
The lightest yellow, very high in tonal value.
Slightly cool but not really leaning towards green to my eye, in the swatch opposite the paint appears greener than the reality.
Lovely thick handling and dense in nature.
Obviously being so high in value the range of tints is limited but it has power to affect mixes and isn't lost like some.
A wonderful, historically accurate paint. Cracking.

This is a lovely understated yellow that makes some lovely flesh tones - especially with vermillion. Usually super quality from Michael Harding. Pricey but worth it.
Another cracking paint, this Lead Tin Yellow light from MH. It has a buttery texture and does not seem to dry as quickly as other lead tin yellows I've used, which for me is a bonus. I was looking for a non-green lead tin yellow and this one is fine. As with all the old pigments, wear gloves when handling this paint. Thanks!
