Art Spectrum® Naples Yellow is a lovely pale pinkish gold yellow made using Mars Yellow. Mars Yellow was developed in the 1800s as an equivalent to Yellow Ochre but it gains extra strength from the absence of clay.
The original Naples Yellow was one of the first synthetic pigments made in the 1620s. In accordance with proven traditional methods of production, all Art Spectrum® Artists’ Watercolours are carefully stone milled to enhance the individual brilliance of each selected permanent pigment and to maximise its handling qualities. Successful watercolours depend on selecting the best quality paper, the permanence and brilliance of the pigments and the use of a wide variety of quality brushes.
Available in 10ml tubes. Series 1-4.
We do not recommend using Art Spectrum® Artists’ Watercolours as pans.
