Cyprus Burnt Umber - 50ml


Dark, dark, one of the darkest earths you will come across, very neutral and cool as well, think about the depths of a Rembrandt without the warmth and you are getting close.

Apologies for those who have read our other Cyprus umber listing, if not don't worry.....

Cyprus burnt umber, it maybe surprising given the popular connections with the earth oil colours and Italy, however Cyprus since the nineteenth century has provided the majority of the world's umber. This particular umber is warm and has strong yellow undertones and is completely different from say the Rublev French umbers. The majority is mined in the Troodos mountains on the island, and having been there and not that it in anyway affects the paint, it is a particularly beautiful place!
