Black Canvas Majic -- Merida, Mexico Fine Art Painting to Emerge

Painting on a black canvas is a different experience than painting on the typical ho-hum white canvas. I am able to use a host of colors that normally might appear dull, and that wouldn't stand out, but upon a black background, have the appearance of more pigment.

This painting is taken from a postcard from Merida, Mexico, at night. The glistening streets and subtle green flashes of light, and the greenish glow will be really fun to recreate.
