Raw Umber Violet, DANIEL SMITH Original Oil Color Feature
DANIEL SMITH Raw Umber Violet, Original Oil, tube with paint

Our Raw Umber Violet is made by mixing raw umber with quinacridone violet. This rich, deep maroon produces clear, deep glazes and has a purple undertone valuable for shadows. Raw Umber Violet is a wonderful mixer, quickly darkening other colors, and adding some warmth. Try it as an underpainting color when blocking in for landscape or portraits.

The second square down is each color mixed with some DANIEL SMITH Cold-Pressed Linseed Oil Medium to thin them out. Both Cobalt Blue and Sap Green were wiped off, on the left half, then repainted on the right half after mixing with Titanium White.

In the third, fourth and fifth squares down, Titanium White is mixed in to lighten the Raw Umber Violet in the left column, and the color mixes in the center and right columns. For the color mixes, Raw Umber Violet is combined with the Cobalt Blue and the mix is Raw Umber Violet with Sap Green. At the top of the third squares are the color and mixes without Titanium White, then Titanium White is gradually added in increasing amounts. The bottom squares show Raw Umber Violet and the color mixes with the most white.
