About this painting
This is about the differences between sending love and feeling sorry for someone. Pity is proof that one cares, but it is only effective if the other person perceives this as love.

A lone figure sits distant in space, happily recieving beams of love. Beyond the a silver barrier, the real world shows a group of onlookers, appearing similar due to sympathy. The emotion they send is altogether more sad.

Technical details
For an underpainting a colour must be permanent, opaque, fast drying, and it usually helps to be dull in chroma (that is, greyish). For this picture I used black, white, yellow ochre, light red, and cobalt turquoise, and tested the colours first in a small size study.
