Bistre is a brown pigment made from boiling the soot of wood.

It has a dark grayish brown hue with a yellowish cast.

Bistre is often used as a wash in pen and ink drawings to create shadows and depth.

Bistre can look best when paired with colors that contrast or complement its warm and earthy tone.

Some possible color combinations are:
  • Bistre and cream: This combination creates a classic and elegant look that is reminiscent of old master drawings.
    Cream can lighten up the mood of bistre and add some freshness to the palette.
  • Bistre and turquoise: This combination creates a vibrant and dynamic look that is inspired by nature.
    Turquoise can brighten up the dullness of bistre and add some energy to the palette.
  • Bistre and gold: This combination creates a luxurious and sophisticated look that is fit for royalty.
    Gold can enhance the richness of bistre and add some glamour to the palette.
Bistre is the color of history

Of warmth and comfort and more
