When I was discussing paint colors in my previous posts, I mentioned that the two must have colors are:

 French Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna.

Now you get to know why I like them so much!

French Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna when mixed together make the best black.

This is because you can make it a warm black by adding more of the Burnt Sienna into the mix or a cool black by adding more of the French Ultramarine into the mix.

I like to call this mix US for Ultramarine Sienna.

Now your black will have more variation and life to it.
