This is another painting that I did
spontaneously. It's hard to remember my mindset or mood at the time, but after
I completed the piece, I felt engulfed in this sense of profundity and mystery.
The color palette adds to that feeling, thanks
to the fiery monochromatic tones I chose: Quinacridone Red, Red Iron Oxide, and
Burnt Sienna. I applied those colors
using several coats of very light, diluted amounts of paint. I knew I wanted an
element of transparency in the painting, so I waited for each layer to dry
before applying the next one.

I was captivated by the result of this
technique. Thanks to the multiple layers of paint, there isn't a spot on the
canvas that doesn't seem to blend in with the whole. To add more visual
interest, I added a dramatic shape in the center using Raw Umber.
This form took on the appearance of a phantom
or ghostly figure. What’s interesting is that I painted it in the center of the
composition and it seems to expand in various directions before dissolving into
space. This shape combined with the
overlaying and the transparency effect reinforces the mysterious mood that the
I came up with the title after completing the
piece, and the word “spirits” seemed to fit perfectly. On the whole, the
painting’s composition has great fluidity and movement, and the passionate
colors draw in the viewer.
I love the translucent layers that add more
depth to the background. The upper half of the canvas seems to have an ethereal
glow that demands attention. Meanwhile, the bottom half has a mysterious dark
void from which an ambiguous form emerges. Simultaneously, lighter shades
intermingle with this darkness, making the environment seem alive.
Without saying a word, this piece manages to
beckon us closer while also giving us pause. To me, a photograph of this
painting doesn’t give enough credit to the composition and the mood it exudes.
I believe you have to observe the piece right in front of you to experience the
true feeling that it evokes.
