The classic earth paint, the genuine Italian pigment, beautifully milled with a high pigment loading. Essential.
Compare this with a generic Raw Sienna from the big manufacturers and the difference in quality will be startling.
"this is a beautiful, genuine Italian semi-transparent ochre. Like all good siennas, raw or burnt, its masstone tends to reddish while in undertone and tints an almost golden radiance shines through. A very slight gritty quality allows for exquisite undertones."
