ancient cave, pinturas rupestres
The cave are located entirely below ground and therefore are in almost complete darkness. It is believed that the old artists are aided with small stone lamps filled with animal fat.
Colors are smeared directly with the fingers, but also could spit the paint onto the rock, or blowing with a reed thin lines of paint. Sometimes pigments powder rubbed directly on the wall and also they could be mixed with a binder and applied with brushes or rods rudimentary. Branches were used as pens and balls burned mineral dye bonded with resin. Sometimes they took advantage slopes and crevices of the wall to give the illusion of volume and realism.
Often animal silhouettes are marked or scraped to generate incisions and thus produce a realistic outline of notoriety in the rock.
