History : pigment preparation made by Ocres de France in 2015. In the history of the definition of the color "lemon yellow", the battle has been tough ! Indeed, the color is different depending on the stage of maturity of the lemon : yellow green when it is not ripe or orange yellow when it is too much - hard to know ! But in the end, most of the people seem to consider the lemon yellow as a green yellow color ; so this vision wins.
