‘Dancing in the Shadows I'
This painting is part of a set of paintings. All paintings in this set focus on darker emotions. The important part is to see past the dark though. Every cloud has a silver lining, ans all storms pass. Darker times teach us resilience, show us how strong we are, and teach us to embrace the positive in life. I think that's the thing, isn't it? You can't have light without casting some shadows. You cannot escape the life's curve balls. You can, however, learn to dance in the shadows.

It was painted using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Yupo paper is a special synthetic paper, developed specifically for art. It is very thick, and hard to rip. It is finished with several layers of UV protection and varnish to help prevent fading.
Alcohol inks are highly pigmented, alcohol based inks. They can be used like other media like oils, acrylics and watercolors. By layering the inks, and by using different techniques, the artist can create a feeling of depth and flow. The thing that is different about these inks is how unpredictable they are, and to what extend one can control them. Guiding the inks takes a certain level of skill, but also the ability to accept their unruliness. I think that’s why I love them so much!
