Cadmium Red Light

36RCW#7.0.5, opaque, PR:108

Opposite color, Thalo Blue Transparent.

To make a dark neutral with Cadmium Red light Opaque
mix it with the opposite hue Thalo Blue.

These words are colored in a tint of Cyan, see how nicely opposites complement each other? Cyan is called Phthalo Blue or Thalo Blue, depending on the brand. Both words come from the chemical word Phthalocyanine. The color's descriptive name is Transparent Cyan. I use the color Cadmium Red Light for my standard palette.

Cadmium Red Light is not as dark as Cadmium Red Medium. It is easier to make Cadmium Red Medium or Deep by adding transparent Magenta PR:122. Use opaque orange make a Red Light Opaque yellow would make a muddy, chalky color. I found I use the color Red Light more than Red Medium anyway.
