Purple... the Better Black

Purple is my favorite accent color in most of my work. I like to think that for the most part it goes unnoticed by the viewer. In both "Passion" and "Strength" purple played a major role but when viewing the painting as a whole the artwork reads as having fairly realistic coloring.

Several years ago a good friend, who is a watercolorist, said she mixed purple and black to make a better, more rich black color. When I began working in oil pastel I took her direction and have been mixing my blacks ever since. I think the purple warms the black and adds depth. Also the purple/black gives more visual pop to the painting and often complements the surrounding colors.
