Five Colors of Blue

Cerulean, Ultramarine, Thalo, Cobalt and Royal are the colors of blue I used to paint this beach scene. I also mixed in a little burnt sienna when no one was looking.

Lovely painting, I love using blues but never tried Royal. By the way can't spot the burnt sienna!

Lovely indeed, I so miss the beach now and cant wait for summer again. Dont worry about anyone seeing you mixing, but rather have fun with it and go nuts with it : ) I love using different blues in my paintings, and I mix them a lot with different browns all pending on what kind of shades of grey I want. Blues and browns make some most wonderful greys and also very dark grey thats more like black (I never use black unless I want to make greens, mix black with yellow). Again, lovely painting!!!
