Studio Stuff

oil on canvas panel 6x8 inches
The Daily Paintworks challenge this week is to "paint what you paint with." I've painted these objects before in various paintings, so I decided to include them all. After fiddling around with the arrangement for a while, I defaulted to probably my favorite, the good old cruciform design. The dark background was chosen to show off the metallic shine, white and pure color on the tubes.
This painting is available at Vander Molen Fine Art, Arcadia, CA


  1. My art supplies are not near this good looking. I tried the challenge and failed the challenge. Love the highlights all around.

  2. This is excellent, Karen. You really nailed the crumpled paint tubes. I think the neutral background is the perfect choice.
