When In Doubt... Add Purple

One of the mottoes I live by in my art is, “When in doubt, add purple.” Which, by the way, this painting has many shades of purple in it from a wine color in the blacks to a periwinkle in the highlights. Purple has often been my saving grace when a painting just isn’t popping off the page. Used mostly in the shadow areas purple gives life to an otherwise dead black. It is especially good for shadowing ginger and reds. If you look close at almost every oil pastel piece I have done, you will find purple in one form or another.
