Michael Harding Italian Green Umber - This lovely Italian Green Umber is a romantic, earthy color that is ground in linseed oil. It is an inorganic pigment especially chosen for its deep green warm and semitransparent undertone. It is ideal for Plein Air painters to create rich earthy greens for their landscapes. Portrait artists will appreciate the paints’ ability to help an artist achieve many effects, for example, shadows. The handling of the oil paint is smooth and consistent. Consider adding this color to your palette as it has tremendous beauty. You might wish to consider a couple of drops of stand oil being added to enhance its rich moss colour. Italian Green Umber also proves very useful in tonal drawings at the start of a painting.
