Anyone have a good acrylic color combination (mix) to create a very dark deep, rich background to build a painting on?

For a warm one you can use black and cad red deep with red being the dominant color.

Burnt sienna and ultamarine blue, with more sienna than blue so you'll get a warm look to the dark tone. Artist quality paints give deeper darks than the cheaper pigments used in student quality.

I've become quite fond of the combo of. Dioxazine Purple and Dairylide Yellow.

I'd ditto the burnt sienna and ultramarine blue - which you can vary towards blue or sienna depending on the warmth you want.
