Color Charts- #2 Cadmium Yellow Light

Here's the 2nd color in the oil painting study: Cadmium Yellow Light- mixed with each of the other colors (no white) in the top row  top line and then fleshed out several values by adding white in the columns below.

Cadmium Yellow Light Study

Definitely warmer and richer than the Cadmium Lemon  study from yesterday. Also since it's opaque, this paint holds up pretty powerfully ( i.e. not  completely overpowered by other colors, even other opaques like Cadmium Red). It makes a nice range of greens when mixed with Cobalt or Ultramarine Blue.

If this is your first visit to my blog, see Archives for other colors in this study( there will be 12 in all) and stay tuned for the upcoming color studies. If you'd like to do your own color charts, see earlier post  on 7/2 which describes how to get started. These studies focus on oil paints, but they can also be done in other mediums.
