Watercolor Lesson - Creating Colorful Darks, Part 1

Why not put color in the dark areas of your paintings?  I never use tube black or grays but mix my own and add spots of unexpected color in the darks.  I like to make mixes in my journal of colorful darks, experimenting with different color mixes.  A dark window creates a perfect backdrop to show off a beautiful flower box filled with blooms.

I agree, Jacqueline. Can we see your painting?

Good idea - I'm working on it! This is the demo that I will be doing in my watercolor class this afternoon.
