The Dutch Renaissance humanist Erasmus said: Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself. Well so let it be light:
I was beginning with a few torn pieces of paper on my canvas, than I applied on my paper collage a thick layer of bright yellow acrylics with a palette knife. On that layer I stamped with mixed media stamps (n*studio/mish mesh) and finally I used a darker color of yellow acrylics to let it drop down on my background.
Quiet nice, bright exactly like some ‘light’. So it come to me if you look into strong like you can see only black forms like silhouettes so I made a fading women silhouette on the middle of my light area.
I was building my darkness around my figure, I used to different blue tints plus I added some glazing liquid which reactivated my underneath layer, so my dark blue tints mixed with my bright yellow creating a dim green accent. Really loved the result.
Finally as being a texture freak I decided to add some light lines to the dark areas or around the light areas using modeling paste.
