Using the candle image.
It’s mixed well with the pale blue below and has already brightened the original image.
The piece is starting to take on some life now.
The final layer was cut to add a deeper shadow in the lower areas which lie outside the light beam. Initially I was going to use black over parts of the grey but decided this was too harsh so mixed a charcoal grey instead.
This was lightly printed by hand so I obtained a grainy transfer over the grey.
