Description
Details Rublev Colours Antica Green Earth is a transparent olive green with warm undertones, small grained and low tinting strength. Our Antica green earth is from deposits in Prun in Verona region of Italy.

Natural green earths, such as Antica 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 Antica Green Earth contains only the actual mineral from Prun, Italy and linseed oil.

Green earths were 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.
