At Leeds in June of 1644 the Reverend Jonathan Scholefield led an assault singing the 68th Psalm:
may his foes flee before him.
2 May you blow them away like smoke—
as wax melts before the fire,
may the wicked perish before God.
3 But may the righteous be glad
and rejoice before God;
may they be happy and joyful.
extol him who rides on the clouds;
rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.
Painting a figure that is primarily black can be a challenge. I have settled on a technique of using watered thinned black and gradually apply several coats. Though more time consuming, it gives a more layered looked especially with the highlights.
To conclude Psalm 68 and the Word of the Lord:
33 to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens,
who thunders with mighty voice.
34 Proclaim the power of God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
whose power is in the heavens.
35 You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary;
the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.
