Dotty Spots and preparing panels

Dotty Spots  Oil on wood, 8" x 8,"  $330.
It is difficult to assess values and colors when painting on a white ground...  When preparing panels, I gesso first then (usually the next day) tone them in various misc. colors...  When it comes time to paint, I try to pick a color that will harmonize with what I'm painting...  My inventory of panels was running low whenever I picked this one. I had feared the magenta would clash with "Dotty Spots"--but it worked out pretty good.
