Study of Darkness


Curious about how black responds with additional colour as well as considering a textural addition to canvas’ I have made these three small studies. The luminosity has maintained in the yellow but diminishes with the blue and a little in the red, which was expected.



The added tissue paper creates a movement of light across the canvas’. These studies have qualities that I hope to move forward with.



Once I had put the tests up on the wall next to another painting I realised that they were similar colours, making them look like abstract versions of the larger painting.
