Phthalo Blue Red Shade is the first of five subtly different crystal structures of the same Copper Phthalocyanine chemical. Unlike its green-shaded sister pigment, this pigment reflects light in the warmer section of the blue spectrum. When mixed with yellows, this creates far more naturalistic plant greens than its alternate forms. Like the other Phthalocyanine pigments, it is particularly valued for its tinting strength- it is often said that only a single dab of Phthalo Blue Red Shade is enough to paint an entire skyscape.
