Night landscape

Do you know the sensation of placing a pure white paper or canvas in front of you, filling it gradually with many layers of color different in shapes, evenness and transparency, and seeing a totally different world in front of you every time you add a layer? There can be no layer at all – the blank paper is already an artwork. There can be only fuzzy strokes of black – you’ll fall in love with the impact of contrast. There can be five, ten, countless layers, every one adding a touch of a new dimension, of a new sensation tickling your senses.

This artwork is all about fun and experimenting. I see a night landscape in it, because I chose to. You are free to create a different little world in it, visible only to yourself.
