Product description


Series 3

The name Blue Black appears in the catalogs of artists’ colormen circulated in the nineteenth century. Some references describe it as charcoal black, which may have been derived from charred vine cuttings or wood charcoal. It is often listed as a mixture of 40 parts bone black and three parts Prussian blue, which is the composition of Rublev Colours Blue Black. Rublev Colours Blue Black makes very cool black tints with good tinting strength, fine grained and produces ‘short’ brushstrokes.

Swatch Note: Colors swatches are shown in mass tone, straight from the tube, on the left, and mixed with an equal amount of white on the right. All pictures of color swatches in this web site are only approximations of the actual color of the oil paint. We have taken every care to match the color in these pictures on calibrated color monitors to the actual color. However, because of the wide variance in color monitors the results you get may vary.
