Rublev Colours Purple Ocher is manufactured from iron oxide earth deposits containing augite porphyry in the Lori province of Armenia.
Purple Ocher harmonizes perfectly with other earth colors and is impossible to reproduce by mixing colors. Purple Ocher has a deep red masstone and subdued purple tints that are workable paste color ground in linseed oil with a moderate to low oil content and long, slightly thixotropic body. Being an iron oxide, it is lightfast and is compatible with almost all other pigments on the palette.
Rublev Colours Purple Ocher mixed with black or blue furnish grays and chocolates and is most invaluable in neutralizing greens. We believe it will make an excellent addition to any palette and become a primary color in creating cool tints in flesh tones and landscapes.

Some separation of pigment and oil may occur in Rublev Colours Artist Oils and is a natural process when no wax or stabilizers are added to paint to prevent this from occurring.
All images of color swatches on this website are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have carefully matched the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, your results may vary because of the wide variance in color monitors.
Color Swatch Note: The color swatch was created with a thick application (left side) of color and a tint (right side) made with equal parts of color and titanium white and applied on acrylic primed cotton canvas.
Drawdown Note: The image of the "drawdown" contains a pre-mixed paint film of 6 mils (0.006 inches) thickness applied to a standard test card to examine color consistency, opacity, and other qualities. The drawdowns show the full-color strength (mass tone) on the left and mixed in a 1:2 ratio with titanium white on the right. The bottom area of the drawdowns is scraped to show undertones.
