An iconic primary color as bright as the sun itself, this cadmium yellow is the purest yellow pigment found on a painter’s palette. A warm, semi-transparent yellow to start, small amounts of the pigment blend well with other colors to create well-balanced variations. Made with high-quality raw materials and trusted for centuries, this pigment tints well without losing its bright, luminous quality, trusted to hold its vibrant golden color as it mixes on the surface.
Durable, stable, and known for illuminating drama or adding a spark of whimsy, cadmium yellow creates a striking splash of color in landscapes, portraits, still life compositions, and abstract expressions. This paint is dense yet fluid and handles well with brushes or a palette knife. It takes several days before drying, giving plenty of time to work and re-work as needed.
