Members ask ... What is the best Brown for (insert purpose). This thread is not for comparisons or detailed reviews.  Merely for you to show us some of your samples.
 
Also, some browns are actually dark orange, red or burgundy so let's not get to crazy with eliminating colors.  If it looks Brown to you, put it here.

BTW, Blue was here.
Brown was there.
Red was in the woods.
Did you ask about violet (or was it vioLeNt) purples?
Green was leafing us.
Orange is bouncing around.
Black is back.
Here be Pink.
Yellow is Spot On.
Jim says we must share our Black-n-Blues or was it Blue-Blacks?

I've bunched the yellows, golds, and browns together.  It may be too much, but the colors are fun!

I've chased that "perfect" brown for ages . . .  :blush: :blush:

 

In order of preference, I think.

Thank you.
Kiowa Pecan is one of those rare inks that looks stunning when used as a written line and just as gorgeous when washed. Not too many in my collection or inks I've tried can claim to have that quality.

 

If you like playing, it really adds some punch to mixes . . .  B)
