Raw Umber and Burnt Sienna .

Waht combination comes close to making these 2 earth colors .. doesn't have to be exact science just a promixity. Just wondering as I'm at work and can't play.

Sienna would probably be cad orange/ultra blue/and yellow ochre

I'm not sure which way Umber leans .. but I guess a good start would be ultra blue/cad red

In watercolours, you could use, to make something resembling Raw Umber:

Ivory Black and Yellow Ochre
Ivory Black and Cad Yellow
Paynes Grey and Burnt Sienna
Paynes Grey and Venetian Red
Cerulean Blue and Burnt Sienna
Aureolin, Cobalt and a tiny bit of Rose Madder

Thank you ..
Interesting .. from that I deduct that Raw Umber is a brown bordering on green.. would that be a fair assumption?

Yes I would agree with that, it is most certainly a greenish brown.
