Penguin: Origional

The use of colour was limited, before the opening of trade with the Europeans. Natural pigments were used to create colour. Even when the new colours arrived artists were so conservative that their introduction did not significantly effect the selection of colour. The principal colours used on in aNative art were black, red, blue, green, and blue-green. Black was created by using lignite, charcoal, and graphite. Red was made using pulverized ochers or, sometimes, hematite. Copper minerals were used to create the blues and greens. White often appeared as well, in eyes, teeth, and small separating or relieving elements in the Masks. Yellow was used, but very rarely. It is speculated that it was derived from wolf moss. Black was considered the primary colour and the elements painted black can be considered the primary elements. Red is the colour of secondary importance but was sometimes used as the primary colour. Blue-green was a tertiary colour. Black was use for formlines. Red was used for secondary formlines and accents, as well as continuants of primary designs. Blue-green fill in tertiary areas of ground and space. The eye-sockets of a may contain blue.
