Anyone would fall in love with that purple... you can't be blamed :) Did you mix that shade, or did you find it straight from the tube - if I may ask? This one gladdened my heart.

Roy P- i used dioxazine purple (underlayer lighter value) with overcasts of of ultramarine blue. The shading is a natural black made from alizarin crimson mixed evenly with a phthalo green (tube says medium ium green though) thanks for the kind words!

Thank you Bhavani and Joko. This piece sold at my last Artwalk for $15 in a little dollar frame. I asked for 20 but oh well. :) Does anyone have tips on pricing? Maybe i should start a thread in the business section??
