Mister Black's Back

6 x 7.5"
aqua oil on wood

I like Mister Black because no matter where the lighting source is, he appears to be a flat silhouette. And if you didn't guess, I am fascinated with silhouettes. To get some kind of cross contours in all that black, you really have to move & squint around. I also love how his color black changes from warm to cool black - from brown to dark blue-purple. When I took this photo and put it on the computer monitor, at times it got really abstract and the warm to cool areas made puddles of flat colors. You will probably be seeing more of Mister Black because all this stuff is really fun. Plus it is so very plain, it is a real challenge to make an interesting painting.
