A Study in Black

*Blog update*
I'm so excited to say that this piece was chosen by Molly in the Sinful Sunday round up! Click here to see the other images - they're simply stunning, chuffed to bits to be included x x x


So because June’s Sinful Sunday prompt is all about colour filters,
my contrary brain has been dwelling on black.

I have been fascinated by black since my art teacher informed us that there
was no such thing as true black in nature

I think there is...

The infinitesimal line between pleasure and pain
Hope and despair
Joy and devastation
To me that is true black
Orgasm black

Black with Red


I read recently that scientists have created a black so black that your brain cannot make sense of it. 
I think – yes – that’s exactly it – there is no making sense of true black. 
And that’s why I love it so.


I'm afraid my internet connection will not let me upload the original image – sans filters – I prefer the blackened tinted filter version by far anyway… (if I can upload later, I will)

Remember to click on those lips for some other Sinful Sundays! x x

  3. This is beautiful. Thanks for sharing! I too love black, it's the security of the womb, and sleep and safety. It's been my friend for a long time.
