Product description

Rublev Colours Verona Green Earth is a transparent deep green with blue undertones, medium grained and low tinting strength. Our Verona green earth pigment is from basaltic tufa deposits in Brentonico near in Santa Cristina (Verona).

Natural green earths, such as Verona green, are transparent and are absolutely permanent in oil. Most oil colors labeled "green earth" from artists' paint manufacturers do not actually contain the natural mineral, but rather is a mixture of synthetic chromium oxide green and sometimes barium sulfate with either a natural yellow ochre or yellow iron oxide. Rublev Oil Colours Verona Green earth contains only the actual mineral from Verona, Italy and linseed oil.

Verona Green Earth was used in verdaccio--a style of underpainting that uses green-grey colors to establish values for later layers of paint. Verdaccio is renowned for being particularly effective when painting flesh tones. It was popular amongst Italian Renaissance artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci who used verdaccio underpainting in his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.
