Naples yellow light
An old hue from the days of Babylon’s hanging gardens. It was obtained at the beginning of time from volcano sides simply because the volcanoes occur naturally. In the Renaissance, synthetic paint processing began around Leonardo da Vinci’s time. The pigment had many lovely characteristics, including great durability, and improved the flexibility of oil paint like White Lead. Sadly, it also had a big concern – one of the most toxic pigments known. Today, health issues have replaced it with ochre and white mixtures to give artists the soft, yellow colour.
Matisse Naples Yellow Light is an ocher and deep yellow non-toxic blend of whites. Matisse Naples Yellow Light is a rich, opaque cream that owes its usefulness as a lighting agent to its fame. Over-use of plain white to lighten a hue can sap a colour of a high degree of vitality and can change colour in certain situations, such as reds. So, as white is added, reds become pinks.
This is why a smart artist chooses white as the last resort’s lightener and often seeks to illuminate shades with the aid of a brighter hue next to the colour wheel and maintains a rich hue. Thus, yellow Naples is very good for the illumination of the ochers, yellows and oranges. Mixed with scarlet it is equally useful in skin colours and in sunset skies for lovely salmony like colours. Mixed with blues, the soft greens found in many trees, especially when the sun is on the vegetation, will provide. This versatility has made this artist a famous alternative for thousands of years.
