This is one of my favourites, a true purple ochre, reclaimed and sustainable.
In masstone a deep, coolish red. Semi-transparent and smooth in handling.
However it is once white is added it's hidden beauty is revealed. It produces a wide range of lilac tints, a remarkable colour given it's mineral origins. For gently cooling earth mixes this will be exceptional, enabling subtle shifts of temperature across flesh.
This paint will be utterly harmonius with other earths and for the more traditional palettes. A tint with white is shown opposite.
