Soot graphite powder and mixed media

Using not only watercolour but also graphite powder and most recently smoke from a candle, I would say that I’m playing with light and dark and with fire and water.
Painting with monochrome tones requires emphasizing the contrast and accentuating the three dimensional effects. The process is influenced by my emotions and what’s going on around me. As soon as the medium touches the surface I forget everything, making it up as I go along. Figurative or abstract creations: it doesn’t matter to me as long as I am creating.
