Before Dark 8" x 8" oil on linen panel
This is one of those low key paintings where taking a picture gets to be more difficult than painting it.......just about. It's done on an oil primed linen that has a portrait smooth finish. I used thin layers and glazes to build the feeling of dark, but with subtle color. It's an unusual way for me to work, but I find trying new approaches now and then keeps my mind fresh for the next painting.
