  1. Yes, but purple is adulterated with red. a warm color- in fact the warmest. The other blues tend slightly toawrad green, which is of course blue adulterated with yellow; ergo all the other blues are cooler..

    It’s also worth mentioning to the novice that ultramarine is a pigmet with the very worst brushing and handling proprties. When used on its own it tends to be stringy rather than buttery and will tend to produce streaky burushstrokes.
    I recommend using cobalt instead when possible.

  2. no it’s not because it’s mixed with purple. purple is a cool color, so is blue. Two cool colors equal the coolest color mix.
