One I like. The other I don't.
Never mind the fact that I chose to photograph an artist quality (Golden Raw Umber) next to a student quality (Galleria Burnt Umber). The fact remains that when it comes to my method of painting (rollers, mediums and extremely diluted acrylic paint) I prefer the Raw Umber over Burnt Umber any day.
A natural cool brown
Leans towards green rather than orange
Looks crisper & cleaner when diluted with a lot of water
A natural warm brown
Leans towards orange not green
Tends to look muddy when diluted with a lot of water
Another one of my favorite browns to use is Vandyke Brown by Winsor Newton.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
