This is quite dark in masstone, a brown with a greenish tinge, in some lights almost like a dark olive green, it is quite different from an Italian sienna, being much cooler and presenting much gentler traces of yellow.
It shows a yellow earth hue when used thinly, however the paint as a whole is cool for an earth. It's tints display fairly neutral greys. It has good tinting strength.
The pigment comes from the last remaining European company mining the ochre deposits in the heart of the Luberon Mountains.

I use both M Harding / and Rublev paints it makes perfect sense to just use quality.Not sure what else but excellent cannot recommend enough and the supplier is supreme 👌
The colour of this paint in use is like a softer buff titanium. I use it to create beautiful hues, it’s become an easy go to paint when bringing other stronger colours together in my abstract work.
This Sienna is quite different from its Italian cousin & unlike any Sienna I've tried. So much so you could be forgiven for calling it an Umber. It's a cool colour which make some interesting greys as well as som cool browns. As with any of the colours in the Rublev range some wonderful hues can be achieved with a little experimentation, you can't go wrong with these paints.
