A commission for friend Cathleen's new family addition. Painting anything black seems like a challenge. But if there is enough light hitting the object there is plenty of information to use for details and to create form. It's also fun to use different blacks and greys although mixing them on the palette is tricky as the paint might look too dark or too light until you add it to the canvas and in context with what else is there, it is very different. The red bandana helps add some interest and color contrast. 8"x10", acrylic on canvas.
