The "Swatch This" Challenge Day 45
GOETHITE BROWN OCHRE
Goethite Brown Ochre is named after Johann Wolfgang Goethe, the German philosopher, poet and mineralogist. Daniel Smith's unusually pure pigment found in iron deposits is mined in Russia, south of Moscow. Goethite Brown Ochre is a dark tea color when mixed in a thick creamy consistency but in watery application it is a warm tan with lots of interesting granulation. As with most earth pigments, it is lightfast and permanent. Goethite Brown Ochre was the perfect way to paint my Maine Coon cat "Charlemagne's" (Charlie) friend, Bunny.

“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.
