A unique and very special version of the classic green leaning blue, Cerulean Blue.
The pigment is specially made in the North West of England in small batches of no more than 5kg , very pure and clean. Bound in a pale oil to maximize the colour - the oil is a cleaned, cold pressed linseed oil, purified with fuller's earth to lighten the colour and remove any footings.
In masstone the paint is lighter than a lot Cerulean blues (i.e. not as green leaning and lighter in tone). Spreading it out, it's very transparent nature is revealed.
In tints it is relatively strong, similar to other transparent Ceruleans, the tints are a wide range of slightly coolish blues, with less green edge than most.
It would function very well in a limited palette as a cool blue in opposition to a warmer ultramarine or for those who find other Ceruleans too green.
A real rarity.
