Default Spinel Black

I used spinel black recently for a painting which had a very dark background with an extremely narrow value range variation. At this
range the black was beautiful,without any observable tendency towards
any one hue, but when mixed with a small amount of white, it was evident
that there was a slight tendency towards the bluish. Later, I tried mixing
spinel black with yellow ochre and it made an ugly green. As mentioned,
it is an intense pigment with a smooth quality that makes it an easy pigment to handle.
