Delft Blue / by Karen Matheis

Last week, I was in the Old Holland Paint section at my favorite art store.  Old Holland colors are known for their good quality and have incredible hues. After opening the top of a tube and examining, I chose the Delft Blue.  

Wow, Delft is an incredible color to work with, and I am in love.  It  mixes well with grey, giving it a punch. It's pure color has a slight purple to it and is quite vivid. 

I have been mixing Delft with other colors all week long to create a wonderful palette.  I am pairing with a grey orange on some paintings.
