Along with ochre and umber, sienna is found in a variety of prehistoric cave art, and is considered to be among the first pigments ever used by human beings. It is named after Sienna, Italy, where it was sourced during the Renaissance period.
This gentle paint infuses a cozy, soothing flush into every sweep of the brush! Caught between the brassy color of a penny and the golden hue of honey, it is a watercolor that has enriched a diversity of paintings for hundreds of years.
It is no wonder that men and women of all ages have continued to use it. It is capable of permeating any artistic piece, deepening dimensions and allowing the picture to spring off the canvas with startling realism. It is chiefly used in order to:
- Create Warm Tints
- Embolden Strokes
- Provide Texture
- And Much More!
Enliven any artwork with this welcoming amber hue! Order immediately!
