My entry to the Dreams contest of :iconallartsupport:, done in acrylics on ~50×70cm paper.
I had been wanting to make a painting based on one of my favourite pieces of philosophy, Kant's essay on Enlightenment: Enlightenment as having the courage to use one's own mind, instead of only being lead by others. The quote "sapere aude" consequently means "dare to think". Painting such abstract ideas is difficult, and this was my most ambitious traditional painting to date.
A detailed walkthrough was and is available on Patreon: www.patreon.com/jenniferlange
