Presence in Absence

Low colour key mixed media still life painting of a group of old bottles and Buddha head on prepared paper. A search for essence in the stillness of the subjects. A realisation of the importance of the negative spaces and the quietude of the grouping. This exploration will be taken further. How far can I go in desaturating/ghosting the objects while still giving them presence?

Medium Mixed media, oil paint, charcoal, pastel on prepared paper
