Low staining and lightfast, this semi-transparent black-brown is a palette basic. From its rich, deep state in concentrated strokes, Sepia can dilute to a subtle mushroom hue. Enjoy this transition in washes from near to far or from shadow to light in plowed fields and farm subjects. Fence posts – the wet, West Coast kind – are fun to paint, as are bulrushes and cattails. Try each wet into wet.
