With Hope (2023) I learnt that the Renaissance period had mostly used egg tempera as their paint and silverpoint so in this painting; I used both. The silverpoint and ink add depth to the work while adding the clouds over the top, with tempera you have to keep layering so it was an experience and also made me think that humans have layers of their personality but at the bottom of every layer there's hope.
So I decided to make clouds with sunrays during the early golden sunlighting. It's bright and it rises above everything else while the colours evoke happiness and harmony with the environment. It is supposed to evoke the emotions of hope and peace.
