Linseed oil paint outdoors- Brown shades
Brown and dark grey shades are lighter on the facade than on the colour samples, and really coal-black facades are almost impossible to produce.
The brown shades are produced using Iron Oxide Brown, Green umbra and Burnt umber.
The pigment Green umber is not particularly green but brownish in colour like all other umber pigments.
This pigment has lesser redness making it particularly useful as a tint colour in all possible shade mixtures.
Mixed with black, brown or white produces a wide variety of grey shades.
