Most recent painting
A tiny painting I did back in January. I was just playing around with a new tube of black (bone black). I'm amazed at how differently it behaves than carbon black when mixed with my other colors. Bone black takes the intensity of the other colors down a notch while allowing them to shine at the same time. I'm currently working on a project to see what all of my colors look like mixed with bone versus carbon black. This opens a whole new world of color for me.
My favorite part about the composition of this piece is the negative space between the two flowers. I want to play with that more.
