The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 28
BURGUNDY YELLOW OCHRE
Burgundy Yellow Ochre is a warm, glowing earth color. In a light wash, it produces a clean yellow.
It is fortunate that Daniel Smith has found a supply of this pigment since this natural ochre was mined from a deep vein running near the Loire River in western Burgundy where the mines were closed in 1970. Burgundy Yellow Ochre layers nicely without becoming flattened or opaque as it is quite transparent. I was able to find a nice range of values and only needed a bit of a shadow color and red to paint on of my friend Rickey's chickens.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
