The triumph of black over titanium white final... Mustering some intestinal fortitude!

After finishing painting the master bedroom with the "muse", I was ready for the grand finale with this painting project...


Needless to say, it's with a bit of anxiety that I poured some titanium white over this project... to connect once and for all with the title of the painting. I will submit this work to the upcoming Montreal art contest.

Note: Under normal circumstances, I would have subjected the white to the ambient pinkish light in this picture. I decided to tip the scale towards a failed extraneous attempt of a white pour at spoiling black, in this case a black beauty. I leave everything else to interpretation.

Gracias por su visita. Su trabajo me encanta mucho. Y que puedo decir de Barcelona... una ciudad que visité, una de las ciudades más bellas del mundo...

Well, it remains significant that white spot ...

Leovi, yet I didn't want to spoil her beauty... while toying with utter disaster... In the end, I settled for a rather conservative diadem-like pattern... P.S. Thank you for your interest
