Gamblin Artists' Oil Paint, Terre Verte, is made with pure artist-grade pigments and only the finest refined linseed oil. Terre Verte was historically used as a bole for gilding and as underpainting for flesh tones in Medieval painting (verdaccio). This green earth oil paint was made from volcanic celadonite and/or a mineral of sedimentary origin. Robert Gamblin mixed this color because true green earth pigment is unpredictable in color and availability. Gamblin Terre Verte is an excellent color for grisaille and has a weak masstone and very muted tint. Formulated from Hydrated Iron Oxide (PY 4), Hydrated Chromium Oxide (PG 18), and Copper Phthalocyanine (PB 15:1).
Available in a 37 ml. tube.
