The Color of Pi

The color of Pi
Hex color code 243f6a

There is actually a mathematical color of Pi!

If you express Pi as a hexadecimal, you get 3.243F6A8.  

Dropping the integer, you get the Hex triplet 24 3f 6a -- 
24-bit color 243F6A -- which is probably closest to Pantone #280 "Catalina Blue."

(I used QoR's Indigo)

Given Pi's infinity, I thought this would be a meaningful first page to kick off a new sketchbook journal!  This one is Strathmore Mixed Media Visual Journal, 5 1/2" x 8"     It handled the watercolors quite well without any bleed through or rippling.
