4 - Mixing with Raw Umber

This is the 4th on my series of colour mixes using my Ultimate Mixing Palette

Raw Umber is a neutralised yellow. You could create this hue by mixing a purple and a yellow but that's quite a fiddle. The Daniel Smith and Da Vinci versions are wonderful and dark so they add a dark cool brown to the palette. I find Raw Umber really wonderful for shadow colours, skin tones and in landscapes.

  1. Agreed - the DS BU is so much stronger and darker than the WN. I used the WN for years and struggled with it all the time. Now I've moved to DS BU I no longer have the problem
