In masstone this is a deep reddish brown, like a brick red but darker in value. Used thinly it's semi-transparent nature shows earthy, luminous orange hues.
The swatch on the left doesn't do this justice, it's tints are wonderful.
It produces excellent flesh tints when white is added however what makes these tints very special is the visible blue undertone, giving a very convincing flesh colour but with depth. When you look at a mid-value tint, the temperature shifts from the cool undertones to the warm pink hues, it is like looking at real skin!
Like the other French earths, this is sourced from the Luberon Massif in France.
