French Raw Sienna - 50ml


French raw sienna from the last remaining European company operating the ochre deposits in the heart of the Luberon Mountains. It's subtleties and qualities will blow away a generic raw sienna, just try it to see the difference.

It is a semi-transparent brown with good tinting strength, fine grained, it has strong lean towards green and would make some lovely greys when mixed with a red earth. So very different from the Italian raw sienna, which is warm with yellow tendencies, anybody wanting work with a earth based limited palette could not do better than selecting from the Rublev range.
