gamboge

This week Mr Colour Collective chose the colour gamboge for everyone to use in their creative endeavours and, for once, I remembered before the deadline! So I spent a nice hour painting this as a great start to the bank holiday weekend :)

      • It’s not one I have used. I tend to stick to cadmium yellow. Will have to consider this in the future. What’s it’s lightfastness rating like? I vaguely recall that older versions of the colour may have had some issues in that area.

      • Yeah I don’t think it’s great. I actually don’t really like it as a colour to use with other colours either – very overpowering. I’m just using up the rest of the tube I have in my sketchbook.

        I struggle to find any yellow I actually like! Trying out quinacridone gold just now but always come back to cadmium or lemon yellow.
