Goethe wrote, “It is not at all unpleasant if blue has elements of plus in it. Sea green is rather a pleasing color.” The colors with elements of plus that he referred to are warm shades, or those with yellow and red components in them. These appear to advance in space, while colors with blue and gray in them appear to recede. Goethe would have called ultramarine blue a cold color, and this greenish blue a more pleasing one, since it partakes of a plus of yellow. Bright cerulean blue barely recedes in space; its effect is warm and sunny.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
