This is an attempt at adding black paint to my palette. I added some Ebony Black to create some interesting greens and try making grays that can be colored a little easier. The deal is to use it sparingly and not let it dominate anywhere. Adding a little to white to get a warm gray and then coloring it with some blue and Alizarin gave me the wonderful mauves and blue-grays in the background of this painting.

This is a bit of a departure for me. Different colors. For the most part, I’m happy with that part of it. More experimentation needed!
