Two yellows I love, both Micheal Hardings.

Naples Genuine light
Yellow Ochre.

Most Naples Yellows are a mixture of a white and a Cadmium Yellow. Micheal Hardings is not. It is a clear light yellow, a tad cool. It is great for lightening colors while not making them ashen, especially reds.

It is exquisite in light skin-tones as well.

Yes, the one that I am using is from Williamsburg. On the color chart it's Naples yellow Italian, PBr 24, chrome titanate.

That is a horse of a different color. It is not the same pigment at all. Here is Micheal Hardings. Try it, it is exquiste in skin-tones. I have never wanted for another light yellow.

Is that the same as "lead Tin yellow"?
OK, I do have a little extra money today and some time with the computer. I'll go order some Michael Harding paint.

PS. Yes I was just reading about the Michael Harding yellow from your link, and the Lead Tin Yellow that I got from Doaks will react with the metal on the pallet knife also, so it's probably the same chemical. It's several years old now so I need some more.

Yes indeedy! It is good old lead tin yellow! You will love it. It goes a long way.

How does it react? I do not seem to have had a negative result with it using my cheapo palette knife.

Just reading their description of Michael Hardings cremnitz white ground in walnut oil has gotten me all excited. I have long been a fan of walnut oil and as I have said before, it's the feel under the brush that makes the difference. It appears that they also know that to be true.

It will cause some graying of the color. The yellow if mixed with anything metal will have some strange gray streaks in it. I noticed it before I knew what it was. It's still usable though, even if that happens.

Hi to all, can I also bring to your attention the amazing Harding's lemon yellow ? A cool cool yellow that goes toward green with a good enough tinting power (not similar to the chart on the website) beautiful in mixes and great for accents. I think that it's a pure colour that can't be obtained from mixing without loosing chroma.
Worth having.
Ilaria
