This sky blue is great for mixing and an excellent choice for landscape artists. Try blending it with Cadmium Yellow Orange to make smokey mid greys, or with Venetian Red for deep and earthy mauves.; Sennelier gathers only the finest organic and inorganic pigments from around the world. These pure pigments are ground very slowly with extreme care to an extra-fine consistency. They are then combined at maximum concentration with an archival safflower oil to yield the highest possible tinting strength and a rich satin finish. This paint has a unique buttery texture.
