Tuscan colors are a must in today's decorating scheme says artist Linda Paul. We love these colors because they are warm and inviting. Picking that perfect shade of Tuscan red or green can be tricky, but you need to go no farther than mother nature to get it right. What makes this artist an expert on Tuscan colors? American artist Linda Paul uses actual natural earth from Tuscany to create her paint. It was mother nature who created these colors that have been around for thousands of years. The colors come from earth ocher which evolves in sedimentary layers of color that run the gamut of cream, yellow/gold, rusty oranges, orange/reds, brown reds, and deep browns. In the area around Verona  Italy, the earth is actually a sage green color. Luckily with today's technology we can perfectly match these colors for house paint and home decorating

Here are some examples of classic Tuscan color palettes  

In this painting of a Farmhouse in Tuscany,  the artist has used a tuscan color palette of cream, pale gold, rusty red and sage green, all from natural earth mixed with egg yolk. You can recreate this same color palette in your home by using these colors

I just wanted to say thank you for your fantastic art work.  This was a present for my fiance.  She loves the Italian culture with vibrant colors and nice architecture.  One day we will go there.  She designed our new kitchen with many of the same yellows and oranges in the painting, with some earthtones as well.  You displayed these colors in the setting better than I have ever seen.  I plan to send you a picture of your great painting in its new home very soon.  She was excited and I just wanted to give my thanks.
