Zecchi's Ultramarine Blue Pigment (the light, the shade)


Zecchi's Ultramarine Blue Pigment (the light, the shade), 2017, oil on linen on panel, 6" x 5"

This week, I will be in Rome to travel and paint and study Baroque art. If you'd like to come along, join me on facebook or instagram.

I brought this pigment (and other pigments) back with me from Florence, Italy in 2008 (you can see a snapshot I took of the pigments at Zecchi's Art Store here). Also, this painting is part of my the light, the shade series that I began back in December 2012. I wrote about how Robert Lax was the inspiration for my "the light, the shade" series here. Generous support for my "the light, the shade" series from June 2016-June 2018 is provided by the Norman Johnston Fellowship at Arcadia University.

If you enjoy this painting, you may also like to see a bunch of my paintings of paint tubes or paint pigment.
