1- Open a transparent image of 800 by 650 pixels

2- Set your colour palette with two colours matching your main tube

My choice : Foreground : colour c39d75

Background : color e4d6a2

Set your foreground with a linear gradient as below :

  

3- Flood fill your transparent layer with your gradient

4- Effects / plugins / Filters Unlimited 2.0 / Distortion filters / Smelter 2 with the settings of your choice ( I have put 169 )

5- Effects / plugins / Filters Unlimited 2.0 / Color filters / Blue sky / 220, 125 or settings of your choice !

If the blue sky doesn't match your colours, use the filter Adjust / Variations to change the colours or play with the effect Hue and Saturation / Hue Map of Adjust until you get colours you like.
