Review by Alison Partridge
So far, all of my reviews of Michael Harding's oil colours have been very good; but I'm really not sure what to make of this one. It may just be that this Raw Sienna is wrong for my palette, as it contains far too much green for my liking. As soon as I add it to another colour, say a semi-transparent yellow, the mixture will acquire a greenish aspect. This can be useful for producing muted landscape greens, but not for mimicking ochre or creating earthy browns. I might try the Winsor and Newton colour as an alternative, or Michael Harding's Transparent Oxide Yellow. However, the paint itself, like all Michael Harding colours, is beautifully transparent and full of pigment. (Posted on 20/08/2015)
