Product description


Series 2

Rublev Colours Van Dyke Brown Artists Oil is made from lignite or bituminous earth containing iron oxide found in Kassel or Cologne, Germany. It was also known as Cassel earth and Cologne earth. Van Dyke Brown is semi-transparent black brown of moderate tinting strength.

Van Dyke Brown proved a popular color in the seventeenth century and was notably used by the Flemish painter Van Dyke in many of his paintings. Today, most other formulations for artists' oil colors imitate the genuine pigment with calcined natural iron oxide mixed with a black pigment.

Made from an earth pigment, the color of Van Dyke Brown can vary greatly between different brands. Rublev Colours tries to keep as close as possible to color charts dating from the nineteenth century for a genuine Van Dyke Brown.

Rublev Colours Van Dyke Brown Artists Oils

Drawdown Note: The scan of the "drawdown" (left) contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns are scraped to show undertones.

Swatch Note: The paint swatch (left) was created by applying paint directly (left) and mixed mixed with an equal amount of white (right) on acrylic primed canvas. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
