Color Charts #9 Transparent Red Oxide

In watercolor, I could not  live without Burnt Sienna, but in oils I have discovered Transparent Oxide Red, which I prefer as it seems cleaner, more transparent, mixes beautifully with other colors as seen below:

Looks like if you don't have Yellow Ochre handy, you can approximate it with T.O. R and yellow.
Also can get some rich darks and warm neutrals, taupes, especially when mixed with other darks like the blues or greens plus white.

If this is your first visit to my blog, see July Archives for other colors in this study ( there will be 12  plus a couple of bonus ideas).
