French Ochre Havane, PY43/PR102, is a special blend of natural earths and like the other ochres has a matte, full richness that feels and looks like tanned leather. Its colour is similar to, but brighter than Italian Orange Ochre. The semi-transparent nature of French Ochre Havane provides it with greater depth giving it permission to be a glaze when it wants to be and acting like a matte ochre otherwise. Like the French Yellow Ochre Deep, French Ochre Havane is not a strong or dominating mixing colour and its tint is warm and expected for its masstone.
Each colour is ground to enhance the beauty and luminosity specific to that particular pigment. Some colours will feel slightly gritty; others extremely smooth. Pigments are ground in pure, premium, alkali-refined and PH- balanced linseed oil and made in batches no larger than five gallons at a time. This provides total control over the product, much like the late nineteenth-century French colour makers. All the materials are hand measured, and every ounce of paint is scrutinized. The paint is packed in 37 ml and 150 ml non-reactive aluminum tubes. Larger quantities of paint are packed in aluminium cans using only the purest materials.
