I 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.
