Black and White

Black and White

An unplanned black and white painting that turned out surprising.
The result reminds me of winter. Though we don’t have winter here.
Black and white is not the absence of colors or colorful colors. It’s the beginning of one.

Blessings to all of you especially at the U.S area. Huge Hugs!

  1. This turned out fabulously! I love what you said about it being the start of color! So glad you shared this with Fall Fearless and Fly!

  2. This is so moody and magical. I thought the image on the right was a mouse, which is an animal that is both timid and bold, which I thought was a great metaphor for triumph and defeat! Thanks for joining Fall Fearless & FLy!

  3. I like that: it’s the beginning of color… Beautiful painting!

  4. Just gorgeous…I can see a young polar bear cub emerging from his snowy den….such an impactful piece.
    Love it lots…

  5. Love this page, I can see the polar bear cub too, lovely :-)

  6. love the softness of the page. x

  7. Good textures Elisa. I like the expression on the dog’s face. Keep being surprised – you are on a creative roll. warmest regards

  8. I like the surprising image you found in your painting. I think sometimes it’s much easier to see things at the beginning of colour before we get distracted by the lovely brightness!

    I love how the sweet dog emerged in your painting. This is the joy that comes from working intuitively.
