Sometimes known as Tenebrism or “chiaruscuro” or “coming through,” the assignment this week was to create a painting using dramatic lighting. I challenged myself to only use Mars Black.

I call him Santiago.

Last spring I took this photograph of a mushroom that looked liked an octopus. I wanted to try an oval canvas and felt this was the right image to try. I call him Octoshroom.
