Black Paint

Color black, 2013

One of the rules of my artistic process is to leave out the black paint.I tend to uses bright and clear colors, which doesn’t play well with black. When I need a dark tone, I use Prussian blue mix with Jenkins green and Dioxazine violet…the idea is to get a richer contrast in my work. If grey is needed I just add some white and Ochre yellow.                                                                
Now that said, I’m starting a new series for a group shows called Visionelle. My inspiration is a black and white photograph. So may be black will be in my future!
