If you have no yellow orchre on you palette what is the closet y ou can get to it...

Try raw sienna. It's very close to yellow ochre, but more transparent.

And if you don't have raw sienna, try mixing whatever yellow you do have with a LITTLE violet. Yellow ochre is a dull yellow, and the violet will dull the yellow.

I hardly ever use yellow ochre anymore. I may try DS' French Yellow Ochre. I use ANZO yellow many times. To me it's grainy and mustardy in color. There are so many new colors out there but I guess it doesn't hurt to have some of the traditional ones on hand.
