Jeepers Peepers 6" x 6" Oil on gessoboard

I do not use black on my palette. A lot of artists feel the same. It seems too harsh so I mix Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, and Raw Umber together to get a close-enough black. It produces a more rich color instead of a vacant black hole.
The painting turned out a bit on the whimsical side.  Oh well.
