10 Tips in 10 Days – Watercolor, French Vermilion

Here is my new favorite color – French Vermilion by Sennelier Watercolor.

Vermilion is a dazzling red pigment originally made from a powdered volcanic mineral – cinnabar.  It was used in the art and decoration of Ancient Rome, in the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages, Renaissance paintings and in Chinese lacquerware.  I love it for its brightness and vividness.   It is great for painting red poppies!
