I am Feeling Blue

Blue as a color
Cerulean Blue
Since the 19th century artists have loved the beautiful sky blue color of this cobalt pigment. In particular it is perfect for the watercolorist being both an excellent color and one of the most permanent colors known.
Ultramarine Blue
The most useful blue on the palette is also the most beautiful. At one time Ultramarine was made out of the precious stone Lapis Lazuli.
Pthalo Blue
Discovered in 1935 Pthalo Blue soon replaced the less reliable Prussian Blue. Until this time organic colors were not counted among the most light fast colors..
