It harmonizes perfectly with other earth colors of Rublev Colours Artist Watercolors, and is impossible to reproduce by mixing other colors. Being a iron oxide it is absolutely lightfast and is compatible with almost all other pigments on the palette.
Rublev Colours Purple Ocher mixed with black or blue it furnishes grays and chocolates and is most invaluable in neutralizing greens. We believe it will not only make a wonderful addition to any palette, but become a principal color in creating cool tints in flesh tones and landscapes.
