Thanks for the additions above. I have, and love, Marone. Red Browns I have Diamine Rustic, which tends to come out at Christmas, but it's red-brown tending purple and I prefer my reds brickish! KWZ Brown #4 was amazing but far too saturated for me, so maybe I'll give the De Atramentis Red-Brown a sample at some point? I do like the saturation level of these inks. Intensity - there are, as far as I can tell, three Gold inks in De Atramentis' Standard range; Topaz Gold (which is super bright), Gold and Old-Gold. The Old Gold does look lovely from this sample . . . . but I already have KWZ Honey . . .
As I have all of the above now and have been playing with them a good deal more, I thought I'd try and discriminate some of the closely adjacent colors. "Olive Drab" is my zone, apparently, so this "Desert Camouflage" area is a fascinating playground - these are similar but, the nuances are fascinating (to me!):
The first is my standard "olive drab", Kobe #59, alongside four De Atramentis green earths. The Smear is the three closest, Khaki as a base with Bahama and Sahara over the top. Below is just those three with Umber. I have all four in pens at the moment and don't find any unnecessary - like a field of ripening grain at various stages!
