Squeeze - 12 x 12 inches - Oil on canvas

I spotted this jumble of paint tubes and thought they'd be fun to paint. The composition turned out to be a bit more of a challenge than I originally thought. I spent a fair amount of time manipulating both the colors (to alternate darks and lights) and the position of the tubes. Most of the tubes are pointed towards the center of the canvas to keep your eye from wandering outside the painting. I also added two brushes for a bit more variation and added interest.
