Blue 1 – abstract oil painting

AKA Ultramarine Dreams πŸ™‚

Shining pulsing phthalo strings
Flowing roiling boiling blue
Shifting seething ultramarine dreams

I wasn’t going to do anything with this, but when I tried it in this gold frame I really liked the way it looked, so I ended up varnishing it and hanging it on my wall πŸ™‚ It started out as a similar acrylic experiment, then I repainted over it with oils…raw umber and white. Later I added a thin layer of bleached linseed oil over it and applied some blue shades, I forget which ones but probably both phthalo blue and french ultramarine.
