Maybe it's just me but this screams flesh! Yes I think it is just me...however a classic yellow earth sourced from Northern Italy so very much a renaissance colour, this pigment was quite probably used by Caravaggio and the others. The lemon in the title gives a clue that it leans slightly more towards green than other yellow ochres. It makes very lemony tints and is transparent, all the indirect painters out there, this is made for glazing!
