Summer Clouds

6"x6" | oil on archival linen panel

Many of my small paintings are studies for ideas for larger paintings. This is a study for a possible large painting focusing on clouds. I was experimenting with different blues, and came across an old tube of Sennelier Ultramarine Blue Deep, so I used it in this one. I have a question - Do you think the different brands of Ultramarine blue are really that different? Or is Ultramarine blue such a ubiquitous blue that any ultramarine will do?
