"Coiled" 6"x6" oil on canvas

Available for $100, contact me.

When I paint dark areas I rarely use black paint.   Instead I use a mixture of Ultramarine blue & Windsor Newton Burnt Sienna.  I find that the WN brand is more translucent than the others.   Recently they changed their mixture and it is not as translucent as it was but it still works.  You can get a good range from brown to dark brown to black.   The more blue you use the blacker it becomes.   In this painting I used WN burnt sienna from an old tube so the blackish color was easy to get.
