Our extrafine single pigment watercolor French Yellow Ochre is prepared with pure mineral Yellow Ochre pigment. This is a natural earth of superior quality coming from Vaucluse in Provence, France. Its color comes from the presence of hydrous iron oxides (limonite), which are naturally mixed with clays and calcium carbonate. Similarly to its red kin, yellow ocher has an ancient history: we can admire it in the paintings of the caves of Lascaux, and throughout history.

French Yellow Ochre watercolor by Nila Colori, prepared with this pure pigment, is extremely lightfastsemi-opaque and has a moderate tinting strength.

Yellow Ochre pigment is milled with just the right amount of a mixture of Kordofan gum arabic (binder) and vegetable glycerin (humectant and plasticyzer). These are the ingredients which are historically the main characters in the production of the watercolors and which give the best results regarding ease and pleasantness of painting. We don’t add any filler or any other organic compound, which might alter the color over time.
