Rublev Colours Yellow Ocher Light is a transparent golden yellow, fine grained and brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Our French yellow ocher is a single pigment color made of natural earths from the last remaining European company operating the ocher deposits in the French quarries of Gargas and Rustrel nestled in a 12 mile long enclave in the heart of the Luberon Massif, the ocher country.
Hydrated iron oxide is the principle coloring agent in yellow ochres. This color is based on the natural mineral goethite associated with varying proportions of others mineral such as clay, chalk and silica. They differ from other ochres in that they contain water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is hydrated iron oxide. Rublev Colour Artists Oil: Yellow Ocher LightNote
