I love my tube of ultramarine blue! I am very pleased with how this turned out and I really enjoyed painting it, especially the lettering along the bottom part of the label.

The background color I used here is the same as the one in the Tangerine Wrapped in Plastic painting. I like how objects seem to “pop” when against it. It’s a mix of burnt sienna and cad yellow with some ultramarine blue for the shadows.
