# 222: Blue Bottle

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I realized the other day that I hardly ever paint anything that is blue and so I decided to take on the blue glass subject again. It is difficult to keep blue fresh and bright especially in the ultramarine and cobalt range. I did enjoy the palette however and so I will give it another attempt tomorrow.


  1. The palette IS fairly nice. That blue and green really dance well together, and the violet children climbing around keep it lively and moving.
    I also like the pigahant in background keeping watch over the family.

    nicely done.

  2. Feels good on my eyes, your blue does. I'm really liking the subtleties in the shadows. PS miss you at the factory :(
