(210) Zippy Lou
6 x 8, oil
As I glanced over at my little 10 year-old poodle relaxing on her bed, I realized she would be a perfect example of how the color black can appear almost white in intense sunlight. By the way, I did not use black on my palette, but made varying shades of darks with mixtures of thalo green + alizarin, and ultra blue + alizarin and a touch of cad red or cad yellow.
