My Artist’s Journey constantly requires me to make choices about the materials I use. In the studio, I’m exploring painting on different surfaces. This week’s experiment was painting on a black canvas. I have terrible night vision, so it’s no wonder I had trouble painting with dark pigments on an even darker surface. It was more challenging than I had anticipated, and caused a bit of eye strain, but I’m happy with the results so far. It’s not always easy to reach a premium destination—especially in the dark—but this time, it was worth all the hard work.
