Color Notes - Black

Time and again, students are told not to use Black.  I held to this for many years myself.   If you find yourself without black in your box, you can mix a rich black using French Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson, and Sap Green.  Try equal parts of each. If you don't have Sap Green, try a bit of Burnt Umber.  I now have black in my paintbox.  I guess I am getting lazy.
