Seeing & Mixing All the Blues of the Sky

One of my students recently asked me which blues I was using. So I shot this super quick video where I demonstrate how to mix the range of blues that fill the summer sky. 

I want to give you an idea of how many different blues you can mix from a simple limited palette. So the only two tube blues used are ultramarine and phthalo blue.

I think I may be trying to catch all the variations of blue from a late summer day and hold them down on my palette.
