In graining ash in oil the colors necessary will be raw umber and raw sienna and a little Vandyke brown or black.
raw umber is a good color, or raw umber modified with burnt sienna and black.
raw umber is a natural earth, containing oxide of manganese; it is quite permanent.
But if you desire stone colour you can make it by putting a pinch of raw umber in the whitewash.

brown earthy pigment, 1560s, from Middle French ombre (in terre d'ombre), or Italian ombra (in terra di ombra), both from either Latin umbra "shade, shadow" (see umbrage) or from Umbra, fem. of Umber "belonging to Umbria," region in central Italy from which the coloring matter first came. Burnt umber, specially prepared and redder in color, is attested from c.1650.
