This is an opaque, relatively muted yellow. Whereas most muted yellows lean toward the warm side of yellow, this colour is a cool, greenish yellow. Its tendency to grey down in tints and mixtures makes it valuable for painting natural light.; Sennelier gathers only the finest organic and inorganic pigments from around the world. These pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a rich satin finish. This paint has a unique buttery texture.
