A heavy, dense blue-green, with low Tint Power. Introduced with so many inorganic metallic pigments during the period of 1830-40. It is a compound of Cobalt and Zinc Oxides, with grey-blue undertones which do not overturn mixes and form interesting effects when combined with the Yellow Lakes. For a landscape painter this is a real “Wow” as it almost paints itself those hazy atmospheric mists you see on distant hills (forgive my own artistic fantasy). It is so beautiful and vivid I hope the colour monitors do it justice.
