Scottish Red Granite - Bealach-na-Ba - 40ml

£13.45

Scottish granite the stuff ancient mountains are made of, one of the strongest rocks, it can survive millions of years of attrition by wind, rain and snow.

Feels good to paint with a material of such substance, it is from the Wallace Seymour range of Native Earths making it totally unique.

In masstone a mid value, reddish, brown, earth with the slightest sparkle I assume from the mica present in granite. Slightly gritty in texture.

In tints with white it produces very good mid-range flesh hues not too warm and not too cool. In my opinion it is preferable to a Venetian type Red or an English Red which always feel too pinky to me. To all the portrait painters I thoroughly recommend trying this.
