Cobalts are my favourite pigments, delicate but with a jewel like quality of hue other pigments families just don't have. This variant is a deep green, deep meaning leaning more towards blue than yellow.
Semi-transparent enabling more light to 'bounce' back up through the paint, gives it a certain glow when used on a white ground.
'A heavy, dense blue-green, with low Tint Power. Introduced with so many inorganic metallic pigments during the period of 1830-40. With grey-blue undertones which do not overturn mixes and form interesting effects when combined with the Yellow Lakes. For a landscape painter, this is a real “Wow” as it almost paints itself those hazy atmospheric mists you see on distant hills (forgive my own artistic fantasy). It is so beautiful and vivid I hope the colour monitors do it justice.'
