Dusk Encounter


The second in what seems to be a new series of paintings going under the title of "Magic Light" in which I hope to create a sense of mystery by having a strange light source within relatively ordinary landscapes and urban scenes. There is an implied narrative but I want the viewer to make up their own mind as to what is happening in the picture by hopefully giving them a sense of ambiguity; is something wonderful going on? Is something weird going on? Is something sinister going on? I might use the title to heighten the mystery too, in this case ... what kind of encounter? What I don't want to do is stray too far into Fantasy painting with these, I will need to curb my tendencies in that direction...

Oil on mdf 12" x 12".

There is a short progress through this painting including what colours I used in previous posts on this blog.
