'Cave spirits' is a painting with a mystical charm. It depicts an imaginary environment that is cave like. Dappled light shines through the strange formations. I wanted to create a certain mood by using mainly cool unmixed coloures. This painting is created using a limited colour pallet of crimson, magenta, violet, green, and cerulean. I built up the painting over a few days using thin washes on the under layers to create drips and organic shapes.
The painting is ready to hang on a deep edge canvas with edges painted black.
