The Bride of Frankenstein

A personal piece. See elsewhere in this gallery for a pencil drawing of this image.

I was experimenting with only using pure black and white paint on a middle grey background. The idea is to let the grey act as the middle tones for the picture and use a varying opacity of black or white to build the form. This is an old method of painting but it's interesting to limit yourself technically in this way and is the complete antithesis of digital work where you can do just about anything.
