Painting pale colours on a black background is challenging as subjects positioned against black makes most pale colours look very light. The answer is to balance the colours carefully, often darkening them more than at first glance is thought necessary, so that the finished painting is not too light or stark against the black background. The paperiness and translucent nature of the garlic is always fascinating to paint.
