We accidentally hit upon a solution when Sue Anne selected black paper for her afternoon pastel painting. No need to apply black, it's already there! She created a colorful little painting on Canson Mi-Teintes TOUCH with the first step being her color adjustment of the original reference photo. Thanks, Sue Anne for your good work!
