Mexican Sage

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. Clipped fresh from the front yard. Don't have much to say about it, except maybe that dark background color is actually not black. The camera doesn't pick it up, but what seems to be black, in one spot or another, contains different mixes of everything that's on my palette. I rarely use just one dark pigment for my darks, I like to mix it up. Even yellow is a fun thing to throw into a dark, just to see what it does.
