Where Light and Shadow Meet

Light and Shadow

meet under a

purple hazed moon

5 x 7


I decided to try painting in a smaller size this time. I really enjoyed it so I am definitely going to do more. I also decided to try using a very limited color palette. Only three colors where used to make this piece. Gamboge (yellow), Cobalt Blue, and Cobalt Violet. I did a lot of negative space painting. That's when you paint the air that defines the edge of an object. I also masked out the moon and the Light figure with watercolor tape. As far as the imagery goes the piece is about how everyone has a dark and light side of themselves and how they are what lead us down our paths in life.
