"Spectator Docs" 6"x6" oil on gessoboard

To purchase, please contact me. $100

These Doc Martins are great for swing dancing.  I haven't worn them out, lots of good dances left in them.   When the paint is wet, black is hard to photograph and to see while painting because of the sheen but after it dries I put a wax matte varnish on it and it even outs the strokes.   A shiny varnish will do the same also. I will re-photograph this one after it dries   I don't use black out of the tube, I mix together Burnt Sienna (Winsor Newton) and Ultramarine blue together.   This mixture is very versatile you can get a good range from orange brown to black depending on how much blue you use.  I very rarely use black from a tube.
