Silver Pitcher with Tangerines

I was taught in painting to not use black on my palette.  Black could take the life out of the painting. We would mix our own black using complementary colors.  Anders Zorn used only four colors in his palette, white, yellow ochre, cadmium red and black and created a world of color.  I used ivory black in this still life and am very happy with the result.  Thank you for following my art blog.
