I once painted my (then) almost empty blue paint tube. I enjoyed it so much so I decided to do another one, this time the near empty yellow tube. There’s something about painting the tools that I use every day to create these little “dailies”. It’s almost like spending quality time with your best friend.

Oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 5.5 inches — 14 x 14 cm
Private Collection

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.
