MONTE AMIATO NATURAL SIENNA
Monte Amiata Natural Sienna is beautiful, very subtle ochre/sienna with added warmth and transparency not found in most earth tones. Yellow Ochre is a much less transparent pigment and siennas are not usually this orange. I love Quinacridone Gold and will always have it on my list of staples. While Monte Amiata Natural might be similar to Quinacridone Gold, there are differences including that it is less staining the Quin Gold and granulates very differently. I
could easily use both in the same painting for different reasons.
“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.
