Fade to Black...

This painting is still in progress. I am working on a new style, in which the painting has a black or very dark background, but certain features are showcased in bright colors, but then fade to black.

My inspiration are the Mexican paintings painted on black velvet. I am going to do a few of these for the show and I am really enjoying working on them. There is something mysterious about them.

Right now I am working on the woman above, and a painting of a bull, which I was inspired by a recent bull fighter painting I purchased.

Thanks for stopping by!
