Majorelle Blue is a blue color named after painter Jacque Majorelle.
The inspiration for this color came from the cobalt blue stone used in traditional Moroccan tiles, the majestic indigo plant found decorating the windows of Moroccan Kasbahs and the bright blue seen in the veils of the Tuareg tribe and Berber burnouses.
This expensive color cannot be found easily outside of Morocco. I found this blue after my trip to Morocco visiting the Jardin Majorelle (or Yves Saint Laurent garden).
Saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. I also used saffron as my painting medium and extracted the brightest
and purest yellow color I have ever seen, together with Majorelle blue, I created these series.
