Smile Giotto Palette

Hello,
I'm doing some research on the colour palette used by Giotto as anyone had experience with these (information from ColourLex)
Giotto, Pentecost | ColourLex https://colourlex.com/project/giotto-pentecost/

Dragon’s blood
Green earth
Lead white
Red ochre (slighlty orange)
Yellow ochre
Azurite
Vermilion
Ultramarine natural

Not too sure what oil colours (or pigments if to be mixed with egg tempera) can come close to Dragon's blood?
and what about Azurite and Ultramarine are they close?
Thanks for your help!

Pebeo Red Ochre is similar to Dragon's blood.

Re: Giotto Palette

FWIW, I have a tube of watercolor paint named Dragon's Blood and it has two pigments, PBr7 and PR209. But PBr7 has such a wide range of colors, I don't know specifically which PBr7 is used in this paint.

Dragonsblood is the bright red sap-resin of this tree found in the Canary Island.

Gamblin made an oil paint by that name a few years back, but now just named Perylene Red:

Re: Giotto Palette

That looks like a well rounded palette!

Here are some old experiments of mine with dragon's blood watercolor:

I think azurite would usually be cooler and lighter than ultramarine. PB35 maybe?
