This is an acrylic painting measuring: 40cms x 50cms
The inspiration originates from my love of the impact of chiaroscuro to create mood in film noir. There are elements borrowed from these films, including the street light shining through net curtains and the shadow from the window that resembles a cross above the bed head. The aim is to add a little drama to a serene scene.
The edges of the work are painted in burnt umber.
