Painting on black .....

Inspired by Chris Cozen and Julie Prichard 
in their latest online workshop,
 I tried painting on a black background today.
One can either gesso the page or
use any black or dark colored paper.

The pages were painted with 
Titan Buff after that.

Once it's dried, 
paint titanium white onto the page.
I left the sides untouched as I wanted
a dark border.

And here's the completed background,
it's still a work in progress 
but I wanted to show you
what you could achieve 
 if you started off
with a black/dark colored page.

Happy Painting!!
