The Versatility of Blue
When I was in England I gave my host a painting of a teapot. She doesn’t like blues very much, which for me is an impossibility because I love all blues. In the painting there was a touch of blue and as she saw it, fortunately she said, “I like it, it’s a Jean Tori blue”. Of course, I was flattered, even though, in reality, it was an Ultramarine blue. I in no way presume to have my own color like the wonderful Klein Blue, but it did make me reflect that I do use certain blues more than others.
Here an example of the versatility of the blues I use, (adding white or black Tempera paint for a lighter or darker spectrum) – Cobalt, Indigo, Prussian, Ultramarine and Cornflower.
Here are shades of Turquoise, Electric blue, Azure and Deep sky blue.
