Color week four


Indanthrone is a warm blue with a nice range from very deep blackish blue to a washed denim tone. I have recently added this colour to my stash. The colour was discovered in 1901 as a vat dye. The etymology for Indanthrone probably originates from the scientific vocabulary, German indanthrene + English one *

Here you can see my use of Indanthrone PB60 from Daniel Smith in this giant wave, in a landscape as snow shadows and as mixed.

  1. Thanks. It sure could be Index but it is actually a scene from Montreal . A little virtual travel to Canada.

  2. Beautiful work Mary! For some reason the woods and snow scene reminded me of Index!
