There is a cool aspect to these French earths, I am really grateful to Natural Pigments who sourced these pigments, you will not find such cool, rich earths anywhere else.
Rublev Colours French Raw Umber is a semi-transparent, deep greenish brown with good tint strength, fine grained and, like most Rublev Oil Colours, brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Our French umber is a single pigment color made of natural hydrated iron-manganese oxide mineral from the last remaining European company operating the ochre deposits in the French quarries of Gargas and Rustrel nestled in a 12 mile long enclave in the heart of the Luberon Massif, the ochre country.
