Try out Rublev Colours French Raw Umber watercolor for its semi-transparent quality. It boasts good tinting strength and average staining, making it a great addition to any artist's assortment. What is intriguing, however, is that this unique shade of earthy brown is derived from ochre deposits found in the French quarries of Gargas and Rustrel. What's even more fascinating is that this company is one of the last remaining European organizations still operating these quarries, situated in the heart of the Luberon Massif.
