Color Charts #11 Ultramarine Blue

This is the chart for Ultramarine Blue.

I swear I wasn't drunk when I did this chart- but it does have a definite expansion towards the right. Guess I had slipped up on the taping after doing 12 charts.

The results from this study aren't much different from the Cobalt Blue chart- just darker and the color combinations are a bit warmer ( reflecting the slightly redder tone of Ultramarine Blue compared to Cobalt Blue). Hence the greens are slightly more neutralized, the oranges yield a colder brown and the pink & magenta columns( 8 & 9) are bluer lavenders than the more orchid like colors in the Cobalt Blue mixtures with those same colors. I'll repeat the Cobalt Blue chart here for comparison purposes.

If this is your first visit to my blog, see Archives for other colors in this study( there will be 12 in all) and stay tuned for the upcoming color studies.
