Lemon Yellow is generally a little darker than the name implies. The color is meant to reflect the outer rind of the lemon rather than the fruit itself. Therefore, it is known as a cool yellow and may have a hint of green in it. It is an organic pigment, and a particularly stable color. Lemon yellow is very useful for mixing with blues to make warmer greens, and for mixing with reds to make autumn-hued orange colors. Lemon Yellow has high transparency and low tinting properties. In the past it was used as a more affordable substitute for Cadmium Yellow. Paul Gauguin's Breton Woman in Prayer, is an excellent example of Lemon Yellow in the hands of a master.
