I rarely use pure black (or pure white) in a painting. One of my first art teachers taught me to mix my darkest colors without using black (or very little) so that the darks were still rich. I still prefer to mix my darks this way.

And, I used some pure black on this geode painting! I didn’t use any pure white, but the pale yellow is very close to pure white.

This is the most dynamic crystal painting I’ve done in my series to paint 20 gemstones and crystals. This image is one half of a geode bookends set.

I am drawn to the inner cavern of this yellow geode. This painting captures the feeling of intrigue and exploring the unknown.
