This is a putty colour using greenish raw umber, and is a really useful colour. It ‘s terrific on its own and with white. It is generally seen as a more rustic colour good for a country look rather than the chateau.
Another way to use it is to mix it into another colour such as Chateau Grey or Duck Egg Blue to make them paler and knocked back.
