Adventures in Prussian Blue

My favorite dark is prussian blue and burnt sienna gouache. It has such a velvety soft tone that I can go into and pull lights out from without it feeling too dead, and the darkest end of it is sooooo rich. It’s my favorite. Here’s a snippet from a study that I worked on this morning. Let’s hope I can keep the same energy in the final.

    Even though it’s a piece of the study I love the mood. I can’t wait the final. I used to use prussian blue a lot, especially in my sketch studies, but fell in love with cobalt blue mixed with burnt sienna.

    I’m glad to see someone else get so excited about colors! Prussian blue is gorgeous.
