I've got the Blues or My Failure

Well, this painting isn't a failure yet but I'm putting it aside for awhile. Maybe for a long while.

I don't use a lot of blue in my paintings yet I seem to have about 20 tubes of blue paint, various brands and colors. But I just can't get the midtone blues right in this painting. When I try to lighten it up it's either too purple, too green or too gray. Don't know if it's me or if I need to buy yet another tube of blue paint.

  1. Maybe that's why you have so many tubes of can't find the one that suits you. I like this.
