Cerulean blue is a shade of blue that ranges between azure and a darker sky blue.

The name comes from the Latin word caeruleus, meaning "dark blue" or "heaven, sky".

Cerulean blue is also the name of a pigment that consists of cobalt stannate (Co2SnO4), a synthetic mineral that was first synthesized in 1789 by the Swiss chemist Albrecht Höpfner.

The pigment is a greenish-blue color that has a slight chalkiness in watercolor and a high degree of stability in both watercolor and acrylic.

Cerulean blue was not widely available to artists until the 1870s, when it became accessible in oil paint.

It was quickly adopted by the Impressionists, who used it to create expressive skyscapes and atmospheric effects.

One of the most famous examples of cerulean blue in art is Monet's La Gare Saint-Lazare (1877), where he used cerulean blue to paint the bright puffs of smoke against the sky.

Cerulean blue is often considered the perfect sky-blue hue, as it evokes a sense of peace and tranquility.

It is also associated with restful, relaxing times, such as spending time outdoors, on a beach, or near the water.

Cerulean blue has a hexadecimal code of #2A52BE and an RGB value of 42, 82, 190.

This color has a hue of 223.8 degrees, a saturation of 63.8%, and a lightness of 45.5%.

It is a vivid blue color that can be mixed with other colors to create different shades and tints.

For example, mixing cerulean blue with white will produce a lighter cerulean blue, while mixing it with black will produce a darker cerulean blue.

Mixing it with yellow will produce a greenish-blue color, while mixing it with red will produce a purplish-blue color.
