In addition, she was also known for painting shadows in dark tones to find the light.

Some of her main works:

Santo António;
Retrato de menina.

Artistic currents: Naturalism, with Realist, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist influences.                                       

 “I paint the dark so I can see the light.” - Aurélia de Sousa
