Why does azure make a better cyan than teal for color mixing?
On the HSV spectrum, cyan sits at 180 degrees, which is bright teal, whereas most printer inks and best primary blues for painting and sketching seem to sit between 190 and 205 degrees on HSV.
If teal is literally cyan, and azure is not quite cyan, shouldn't it make a better cyan than azure since it absorbs red more purely than azure does (and therefore allow finer control in subtractive color mixing)?
Azure seems so popular for cyan that the "new color theory" painters on youtube seem to almost always point to an azure: cerulean (often called brilliant blue), phthalo blue, or prussian blue when they refer to cyan, none of which are really "cyan" in my eyes.
Why does azure seem so much better at mixing than teal (a true shade of cyan)?
