Yellow Ocher Light Oil Paint
Rublev Colours Yellow Ocher Light is a transparent golden yellow, fine-grained and brushes "long" in the direction of the brush stroke. Learn more.
Our yellow ocher light is a single pigment color made of natural earths from the last remaining European company operating the ocher deposits in the French quarries of Gargas and Rustrel nestled in a 12 mile long enclave in the heart of the Luberon Massif, the ocher country. This color is based on the natural mineral goethite associated with varying proportions of other minerals, such as clay, chalk, and quartz. They differ from red ochers in that they contain water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is Iron oxide hydroxide. Our natural yellow ocher is transparent, absolutely permanent and has fair covering power.

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.
All images of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors, the results you get may vary.
Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.
Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mil (0.006 inch) thickness applied to a standard test card for the purposes of examining color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the color full strength (mass tone), on the left, and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
