HEMATITE BURNT SCARLET
Hematite Burnt Scarlet, made from Hematite stones crushed and milled to a fine pigment is a warm reddish, earthy tone that rivals burnt sienna with its granulating powers. This is another Primatek pigment from Daniel Smith.
Its a nice addition for texture in rugged landscapes or for wood, branches or bricks. Hematite, ground from a heavy silvery-black mineral rich in iron oxide has heavy particles that settle in a thick mixture making beautiful patterns. Hematite Burnt Scarlet mixes well with other colors, neutralizing them and adding beautiful granulation.
“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.
