Color week 14

Naples Yellow is semi-transparent and non-staining.  It is the color for what we are dreaming about right now, sun-baked landscapes, wheat fields, and sunflowers!

The origins of Naples yellow remain unclear, but it’s one of the oldest known pigments. We know it was used by Egyptians as far back as circa 1500 BC to add yellow colour to glass, and originally the pigment was made from lead antimoniate.
