"Being in the Dark" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid
Darkness is full of mystery. We often feel insecure in it. However, the darkness implies potential. We have more room to grow. I put the background of this painting is completely darkness. It gives the vastest contrast for the center of focus to stand out. By the way, I didn't use any blacks. The background was done with Phthalo blue and Alizarin Crimson.

So very nice and "loose." The darkness is wonderful and lets the parts in light "shine." Beautiful painting.

I like specially the pottery, with its grays, blues and yellows against the dark background. Wonderful painting.

Your compositions are always so comfortable and the dark background even has a softness which makes the objects stand out so nicely. A lovely painting.
