How elusive- that color of French blue. I have always wondered exactly what tint or shade it is.
Technically, it is blue pigment made of powdered lapis lazuli, but I have also seen it defined as made from ultramarine pigment.
Be that as it may, I have seen numerous samples on our driving trip around France. Here are some to help you decide...
Looks lovely with the ochre!
Lovely doors, eh?
Same building, two different shades
A lacquered French blue, which is the first lacquered door I've seen in the countryside.
A lavender bend on French blue- gorgeous!
Beautiful doors, beautiful setting
So, which picture says French blue to you?
