Black Base & Color

For a first year painting class, I used a black paint [gesso] to prep the foundation for my new painting. The standard base is white gesso. The professor & teaching assitants commented on the odd base color choice & that I had used black as a color, not as a background. It is a large painting, 66″ x 28″. It can be hung in any direction, there is no natural top nor bottom. And a last point is that all the colors were applied with my fingers, thus no brush work. acrylic 1973-75, Indiana [iub]
