The lights go out all around me,
One last candle to keep out the night,
And then the darkness surrounds me.
I know I'm alive but I feel like I've died.
After all this has passed, I still will remain.
After I've cried my last, there'll be beauty from pain.
'Beauty from pain' by Superchick.
This is a double page spread from my second art journal. It started when I was experimenting with gel transfers and this one went a bit wrong, but I decided to use it anyway and quite liked the effect.
Materials include white gesso, black gesso, gel matte medium, black India ink, white gel pen, white acrylic paint, a magazine image, and scraps of text and music sheets.
