another great black/grey - CPR

I found another nice black using combinations of Cobalt Yellow, Pthalo Blue and Rose Madder. This gives a more regular range of colors - from red to orange to yellow to green to blue to violet - with a nice black and light black, of course. It would be good for a subject that wanted pretty pure versions of all the primary and secondary colors. The nice thing about using just these three colors is that the full range that they give you will all look good together since they each (except for the orignal three) have a bit of the others in them. Again, these were all made from encaustic sticks from R&F Paints.
