There are two kinds of light – the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.
I created this piece of artwork in 4 stages:
1. watercolour media used as to create the base shades on hand drawn sketch
2. pen shading to darken the depths
3. charcoal shading to create the pre-final sketch
4. to highlight the red and blue lights and bring out the effect of glow, I digitally painted the lights on top of the hand shaded potrait
