NAPLES YELLOW

Naples yellow is a creamy soft yellow, different from a bright invasive cadmium yellow, and an almost neon lemon yellow

Geometrical rocks amazingly fitting like a puzzle, close to Bridal Veil Falls. Had to come back to put this in watercolor!Β  Didn’t want to leave it bare, so finished the tricky leaves at home.

  4. It’s funny how a colour can turn up so naturally in so many different places.

    1. The same here, Norm. I probably will never make it to Toronto or Nova Scotia, although I’ve seen plenty on the blogs that I would like to visit – especially the art galleries!

    I think Naples Yellow is the perfect shade of yellow. Just the right amount of brightness. Thank you for linking up today and have a great weekend!

    Beautiful shot of San Diego harbor. I love the “Geometrical Rocks” painting… very much reminds me of rocks I might see at Joshua Tree. The bush in front of the rocks even looks like creosote, which is so common in the desert!

    I could eat that yellow paint thinking it was lemon meringue pie. Great collection of photos here.

    1. Closely connected, is the banana cream pie, which is one of my daughter’s favorite, which I managed to drop on one of her teen birthdays! Hey, why are we talking about food right now?? (kidding!) On another note, did you get my email about art?

      HI Junieper,
      I checked my email and I can’t find an email from you. Did you send it to rowenanewton at outlook.com?
      I’ve never made Banana Cream Pie. However, today I made a Lemon Meringue Cake, which was yum: https://www.taste.com.au/recipes/lemon-layer-meringue-cake/ivtp1mDa
      I am a bit of a comedy routine in the kitchen and something always goes wrong and I don’t really plan ahead. However, I’m also good at covering up my mistakes too. I’ve had plenty of practice.
      Hope you have a great weeend.
      Best wishes,
      Rowena

    3. I wrote you at hotmail, but I changed your email now:) Have never made Lemon Meringue (although I like to eat it!). I usually buy pies,except for around Christmas, because my very involved job, until 5 years ago. Now I’m into painting which is just as much involved, lol. Thank you for coming by and have a lovely weekend:) Jesh is the name I go by.
      PS. Junieper I took on so I could separate (my previously 2 blogs) and get the maximum amount of space at wordpress and get through all the security measures at blogspot.

    Thanks for introducing me to a new colour. I admit that the 5-year-old in me tends to ‘see’ only primary colours, but I love your use of this beautifully soft yellow. The pile of stones look like a sleeping face to me.

    1. Haha, it took me a long time to get over my 5-year old eyes, Joanne. At first I didn’t care at all, but when getting into landscape painting, a certain shad can just be “wrong!” When you said pile of stone I had to scroll back, to see what you meant – but I now see it too:)

  14. I must get me some Naples Yellow. I’ve been searching for a soft yellow. That’s a cool painting. The thought of painting layers gives me sweaty palms. I must try it though. πŸ™‚

    Great pictures. I really like the harbor scene and the balcony in Balboa Park.

    1. Thank you Dan – isn’t it interesting that that shot has been sitting in my archives for ages because I had so many harbor shots and with San Diego close by I took it for granted, but now being far away from a nice harbor and because of the color Naples yellow it came to live:)
      If you have been at my blog last week, I still need to catch up – not much computer time!
