Light and Shadows

My new silhouette paintings really change depending on how the light hits them.
I used a lot of silver and gold guache which creates a celestial glow like distant stars in the sky.
I'm conjuring up my neighbors. The spirits that live in the churchyard.
Seems fitting for this time of year.

I love the gold paint on these!! They kind of remind me of the mandrake in Pan's Labyrinth.

Wow your spirits look really gorgeous with gold and silver !! Look almost translucent. Magical!
