Dark Reveals Light


A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work. 

I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.

  1. Beautiful light filled painting. Did you know that there is a transparent mixing white, I would imagine that it glazes quite nicely with just the right transparency. I haven’t tried enough of it to know what one can achieve with it.
