Those canvasses were characterized by the presence of irregular patches of a normally dark colour, floating on much brighter chromatic backgrounds. The tones are velvety, and the shifts between the different masses tend to occur creating faint areas of chromatic vacuum. The predominant shapes are vaguely amoeba-like, there are some crosses, and now it is not hard to imagine the presence of birds of the night, tree trunks, black half-moons, etc.
