Xanthophyll is the yellow pigments that brings many of the images on this page together: it is responsible for the egg-yolk yellow color in leaf pigments. Their structure is similar to carotenes, as in beta-carotenes, found in carrots, and responsible for the color orange.
This yellow is one of my favorite colors, much preferred to the lighter lemon yellow. I like that hint of orange.

I find it so odd – yellow and orange are not my colors; I never wear them nor have them in my house, yet sunflowers, daffodils and rudbekias are favorites, and I completely enjoy your paintings in these hues. Keep ’em coming !,
I understand — blues are not my favorites yet I love the ocean and miss it!
I get that! I used to wear many shades of blue, and now rarely unless turquoise. Probably because pastel blue seems to be THE color for older women, and i can’t (gasp) be mistaken for one of them!
Now I’m black, white , purple and pink ( which I never wore until Raqi filled my world with every shade of pink imaginable).
I love sky blue, but it is a near turquoise.
I’m not a lover of yellow but it’s my daughter’s favorite color. Very pretty yellow pictures.
Yes, It is not my favorite — I go toward oranges when I like yellows — but it is a cheery color!
