I is for Indanthrone: A-to-Z Challenge

INDANTHRONE BLUEI love new paint.  Daniel Smith’s Indanthrone Blue is a new color to my palette.  In past, I have loved Prussian, or Indigo, or Cobalt blue — But this may make me move away from The first two.

It has the ability to be inky black blue to a nearly cobalt blue.  It is smooth and transparent, and I am in love.  (BTW, I am not monogamous when it comes to colors.  Before a-to-z is up I will be in love with a few others.)

It was patented by Rene Bohn in 1901, and was the very first organic anthraquinone dye.  When I found that out I realized it was also the wonderful Golden Acrylic blue I used to create my night skies.

  1. That’s a really cool painting. I dabbled in pain many, many years ago. My daughter is the artist, but she doesn’t pain as much as she used to. You have a great site. 🙂
