I was tried a different approach to this little painting, sometimes I feel like I just have to try something new....it doesn't always work, but I always learn from it. I like how this one turned out though. I started by covering the canvas with a very dark, almost black solid wash. Then I painted as usual but made sure to leave some parts unpainted....something I never do.
Oil on stretched canvas, sides painted
