This image shows the metaphor of the visual image ranges among two spheres, one that is continuously emitting light and one that is dark, receptive and absorbing.

This special treatment is based on the alchemical treatment of artwork by the old Dutch Masters. After the painting made of watercolours and white ink is completed, there are 3 layers of varnish added. The final varnish is made from natural Copal which adds energetic warmth and subtle luminosity to the finished painting. (Copal is the younger version of Amber, both being the solidification of the sap lifeblood from plants.)These paintings are more resistant to ultraviolet light, so they do not require high UV protection glass when displayed (although the UV resistant glass could still be used with these paintings, to protect them further).
When ordering these original art pieces, please be aware that these black background / copal coated are in regular light somewhat darker looking in appearance than how they appear in Prof. Kelemen’s books; however this is modified by their high-gloss surface which works well under a spot light.
So for these black background original artworks, be aware that to make them reveal their amazing full colors and details they should have a small spot light directed to its location on the wall, shining on the picture’s surface.
Another method would be to frame the drawing and add a small spot light onto the top edge of the frame shining directly down on the picture, as you would see in an art gallery or museum to highlight fine art.
