Prussian Blue

Prussian Blue is one of the most used pigments in the etching studio here: a wonderful rich, reliable colour, and I’ve never, till now, stopped to wonder where it originated from. I found these fascinating revelations on facebook this morning, which wouldn’t let me share it, so I’m posting the link and hoping you will enjoy it as much as I did.

And here’s a link to a film I made, called Blue Remembered, which is about the 10 sorts of blue we have in the studio. And about a little dog called Blue, too.

And …it’s just occurred to me, I have another video about Blue, about the Indigo Dyers and Weavers of South West Japan. Here.

You can’t get enough Blue is what I think, in art or in music. Kind of Blue is my favourite jazz album of all time, introduced to me by a boyfriend in 1959. The album lasted, the boyfriend didn’t. The right way round.
