Tip file: Using black in your palette

From Michael De Brito, in the January/February 2010 issue of The Artist’s Magazine:

Black is a very important color, but it can destroy a painting in no time. Even just a dab of black can turn a face muddy in seconds. Using vermilion is like using black—you need just a dab.
