A new beginning

So here we have it, all finished. It almost seemed to paint itself in the end, as usual it was a case of darkening the darks and lightening the lights. Whilst I've been painting the cloud series I've been constantly reminded of a school teacher and very accomplished artist that I had way back. He always said that you can't have light without dark and if you want to show the brightest blinding light then you must also have the darkest dark right next to it. I learnt so much from him. He was very fond of the quote, I think it was Klee but I could be wrong, 'Step into the void'. I feel like I've done a lot of that this year.
