A natural iron oxide, sourced from where all the best earths come from, Italy. I like earths, the history and simplicity, I feel they always add a depth to painting, and they are full of those qualities for which words don't exist. For me this is a greyer, darker terre verte.
Green Umber is an inorganic pigment (not plant-based) especially chosen for its deep green warm semi-transparent undertone. Like most earths it has the ability to dry very quickly. It is ideal for not just the landscape plein air painter but also for a portrait artist for creating shadows.
