Shades of Blue : Bellerby & Co Globemakers

A quick post on the Glacial Blue vs. The Cool Blue globes.

Glacial Blue has land shading while Cool Blue has more simple colouring on land and shading around the coasts. Cool Blue also has a more simple style of painting the ocean while Glacial Blue makes use of watermarks and varies in shading from shallow waters to greater depths.
