Beautiful on its own, and especially so when mixed with a transparent
pigment, this sky blue inorganic pigment is granular and medium-light
in value. Highly permanent and extremely low-staining, Cerulean Blue
creates exciting granulation and settling washes. A drop of Cerulean
Blue into a damp wash such as Burnt Sienna creates a halo effect around
the more dense Cerulean. This is especially effective when Quinacridone
Gold or Quinacridone Burnt Orange are used in the moist underpainting.
This technique is great for rendering lichen and Spanish Moss. Add Buff
Titanium, Undersea Green and touches of Lunar Black – each a DANIEL
SMITH exclusive – and the creative fun truly begins! For a misty
landscape or that dusky quality on eggplant, grapes and plums, think
Cerulean as a mixer.
