"A Cup and Kiwi" - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

Someone asked me today if I use black in my shadows. I don't. I don't use black at all, actually. This is another of those "rules" passed on by some book or professor that I just follow blindly. But for me it works well and I've never been tempted by it. Without it I am very conscious of mixing interesting darks rather than relying on black. Sometimes, now and then, there are small amounts of near black in my setup. For those I mix Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber.

Thanks to all of you who responded to yesterday's post. Your support is greatly appreciated!
