Caerulean or Ultramarine?
How blue can the sky get? This is how it looked yesterday in Greenville and Indian Valley. These two colors are in my set of acrylics, and I'm pretty sure mine are artificial because they were really cheap. I researched these two colors and found they have complex histories and come in many different forms from traditional "pure" forms to a variety of alternatives. Thinking back on my high school chemistry, it would have been a lot more fun if we got to play with pigments - maybe even make some and use them.
