A powerful, single pigment, red.
Based on a Napthol pigment it is a powerful tinter, in masstone not disimilar to Cadmium red deep. It is deeper (leaning more towards violet than orange) than the swatch opposite suggests.
When tinted with white it produces a wide range coolish pinks.
Not quite the opaqueness of a Cadmium but pretty close, as a cheaper alternative to a Cadmium Red Deep it is excellent.
Just pigment and oil, finely ground.

Jam packed full of the most vivid, brightest pigment. This is my go to red, you can easily take it up or down and it will retain its liquid intensity. Splodge a bit of cobalt in for the best blood red. Extremely speedy postage and lovely packaging from Supreme, thank you!
My order was dispatched the next day and arrived boxed the day after that. Excellent customer service and quality oil paints.
