Light on dark paper

Light on dark paper - I love to paint on black or deep brown base. In this case light becomes so strong, almost blinding. In this painting I love the wholr dark atmosphere, so cosy and warm.

A special challenge was to paint the candle light - I tried different candles at home and found out their fire depends on the material the candle is made of. Paraffin gives white and cold fire, bee wax is warm yellow colour and the fire is warm, too.

Actually when you start painting a special "switch on" button is in "ON" position somewhere in your brain, and you start to see and analyse the colours in a special way.
