Magic Yellow

Depending on how I use it, Indian Yellow can yield delicate warm yellows all the way to colors reminiscent of ochres and siennas — or even the whole range all at once! This is my favorite yellow.

Magic color

This specific color gave a rich deep glow to my paintings. It has depth and yet a sheerness that makes for magic on paper
