Winsor & Newton’s Manganese Blue Hue shows up in almost every watercolor painting I do. Like the Impressionists, I apply spots of varied color next to one another in my paintings, and manganese blue hue offers a beautiful spot of bright color that I’ve come to love in my work. I’ve also been playing with other bright blues, including American Journey’s Andrew’s Turquoise.
Add a spot of bright blue to your next painting and see what it can do for you!
“The more I sketched and painted, the more I became aware of the world around me,” says Brenda Swenson. “I found that even the simple things in life took on a new importance and beauty.” Learn more about her process.
Beautiful works ! I really like the colors and especially the edges of the lines all working together. Good stuff ! 😀
I love your work! The blue does add a bit of magic!
Love your work. And I do like the touch of blue in just the right places.
Thank you for commenting. And thank you Kelly for featuring my work.
The coolness of this blue gives the warm colors the balanced attention it needs. Excellent!
Love your style of painting and use of colors. Thanks for sharing
This is exciting. Can’t wait to try.

Thank you Marlie. I love to paint, but I assure you not all of them turn out. LOL
