Wheat King #3

Well, that's my black! This is the black I use most in my paintings: French Ultramarine, Hookers Green and Alizarin Crimson. It's interesting how, on this plastic surface, they separate out in a few minutes. I have to keep on "stirring the pot" to be able to pick up the combination which looks like black.

If you look closely, the colours separate out a bit on the rough paper. I think it's helping to make her look human.

I started her dress so some of the darkest tones are on the paper. It will be easier to gauge the other tones with this in place. Also, it's fun!
