Concentrations 8

A Solitary Messenger  
7" x 11"

I decided to branch out from scratchboards and pencil and use acrylic paint for my 7th concentration.  For my background, I decided to give a gradual lighting to the foreground which progressed into black.  The lighting is very harsh which gives an unearthly feel to the angel’s face.  For this painting, I only used black and white acrylic paint.  The highlights in the clothing gives importance to the angel against the dark background.  The fingers are pointing upward towards the main focus which is the face.  Also, the shadows in the folds in the hair are pointing towards the face.
