Hot n Chili - Daily Painting #16

This painting involved a lot of experimenting with gray.  I kept coming up with purple every time I combined Alizarin and Viridian (dark red and dark green).  Usually, these two colors are supposed to yield a nice deep black, but I just got purple.  They probably both leaned too far towards blue to do a good job of making a black.  So instead I tried cadmium red and viridian.  I got this beautiful gray to work with.  Just love it!
