Today Tuesday Tips is on the color BLUE. Definitely one of my favorite color. I think of Norm when I think the color blue, because he has blue eyes. When I was a kid I used to think that people with blue eyes sees the world in blue, like if you were wearing a blue tinted glass. Ha! Anyhoo… back to being serious. Blue is one of the primary color. Most people would say blue is their favorite color. It is the color of water and sky. It has both positive and negative association. On then positive side, it means loyalty, trust, wisdom, serenity, peace, a calming color. On the negative association, it means sadness, coldness, depression. All and all, blue is an awesome color.
As to what makes blue looks good? The simple answer would be basic color theory of lologous, complementary, split complementary, triadic, and neutral.
For winsor and newton paint, I use -- primary blue, ultramarine, prussian, cobalt, Cobalt Turquoise Light and sky blue.
Do you have a favorite blue?
