acrylic and charcoal on paper (For a closer look at this page, find it in my "mixed media gallery" linked above.)

I usually start with partial black backgrounds. I used a totally black background for this page. I love how the black gives the layers a more mysterious look that starting with white.

Lots and lots of layers.

I'm finished with my 9x12" mega journal...more new art will be coming soon!

Painting on black backgrounds is this month's Green Pepper Press Street Team Crusade.. won't you be a Crusader too?
