Exploring Cerulean Blue

Exploring Cerulean Blue demonstrates the qualities of this colour; it is semi-opaque, bright and stable. Stability is important to artists and Cerulean Blue is reliable, it does not react to light or chemicals. Shown here with Cadmium Green Pale, Indigo and Titanium White, the versatility of Cerulean Blue comes through as the range of tonal qualities are demonstrated in these mixtures. It is shown here becoming more opaque to more transparent when mixed with these colours, whilst always retaining the brightness it is known for.
