BROWNS    
 
     
110-114:
A range of burnt umber. A beautiful standard brown for the centuries. They make nice warm greys.
 
     
160-163:
A range of raw umber. The neutral brown, not to deep, and mixes wonderful greys.
 
     
150-153:
A range of burnt sienna. An earthy red with nice earthy pink tones.
 
     
190-194:
This is a perfect "flesh tone" mixture. The problem with burnt sienna, #150's above, is that the undertone is usually to cool and pink. I've added some earthy orange and yellow to give it warmth and then a touch of its' complement to keep it from getting to bright.
 
     
480-483:
This group was developed at the same time as the #190's above. It is another usful color for figure/portrait work. An earthy orange with a bit of yellow puts it between a raw sienna and a burnt sienna.
 
     
470-473:
A muted yellow brown that is good for warm shadows in the figure.
 
     
500-502:
An orange brown that is mixed with an ultramarine blue giving a rich neutral brown with great warmth. A very good shadow color for the figure.
 
     
490-492:
A strong natural red oxide mixed with a strong orange (#10) making a beautiful red brown with a nice earthy warmth and nice pinkish coral tones.
 
     
180-183:
A natural yellow oxide makes a strong yellow brown with an ever so slight hint of green.
 
     
130-132:
The same yellow oxide as above (#180) mixed with a chromium oxide green to accentuate the earthy green of the color. Very good for both the landscape and the figure.
 
     
580-584:
A range of mixed dark browns. The #580 is a neutral dark. The next are dark reddish browns and the last, #584, is a yellowish brown. They work especially well for hair and fur.
