Red Light District

Here's a unique one I just finished:



The darker the room is around you while viewing this illustration, the more the light bulb seems to light up. This one wasn't a commissioned job. I just felt the need to do a quick study on light.

Interesting :afro:  But TBH, if the bulb was dim enough to be able to see the internal structures of the bulb, you would also be able to see the filament, and the light would be quite yellowy red, I would have thought :scratch:  Very nearly there, and still a striking image - love the red and black together :smiley:

Actually no black or white paint was used in this painting. The dark areas are shades of brown (vandike brown was the darkest shade) mixed with the red crimson. I thought about adding some yellow tint to it... but I was already using all warm colors as it was. It's very hard to create the illussion of depth using only warm colors. Had I added another warm color (yellow) to the mix, I was affraid I might've lost even more depth. This was a hard one.
