This is just a tiny 5x7 sketch of a 150ml tube of Ultramarine Blue, the tube is bigger then the painting.
Today was a busy one in Studio de Dan, I oil primed 5 ea 24x36 and 5 each 30x40 and 5 16x20 canvases. All to get ready for my show coming at the end of April. That might not sound like alot to some of you, but any painter that has had their home decorated with fresh primed canvas can attest to the smell being a bit overbearing (alkyd based) and man that paint flew to places I was nowhere near, but I got it all. (i think) I also painted a 12x12 of the snow bank in the driveway but no good light to photo by(or paint), so you get the paint tube. When I was getting started on my painting; my bulk order of white and some fresh Utrecht brushes got delivered (WOOHOO) so hopefully no more brush strokes that look like I made them with my fingers,YAY.
