French Ultramarine is one of my favorite blues. It is a semiopaque, warm blue that mixes well with other transparent nonstaining colors. It is a good color to use as foreground shadows. It sits between Winsor Blue and Ultramarine Violet on the color wheel.
Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber complement French Ultramarine when juxtaposed in a composition.
