The cloudless sky appears to be blue because blue light waves are scattered to our eyes more than other colors. But the blue we see also contains violet, green, yellow, orange and red, and so does this color. It is made with ultramarine green and champagne chalk. Chalk covers the spectral range from red to yellow and ultramarine green extends it from green to violet. This built-in rainbow allows Midmorning blue to be combined with almost any other color. Use it with sand, dark umbers or wood when ultramarine blue is too spacious and turquoise is too greenish.

"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."
