Hi lovelies, 

Here's a big piece I finished recently.

I titled it “Phosphenes”, and it is huge in real-life (well…huge for me…haha. I'd never painted this big before), measuring 22 by 30 inches. 
It was painted in gouache, watercolour and acrylic, on 640gsm watercolour paper. 

 There will be a video of it on my Youtube Channel hopefully next week! In the meantime, here it is! I hope you like it. :) 

 Prints of it are available on my shop : myriamtillson.storenvy.com/

 And a full detailed process PDF of it will be available next week on my Patreon, if you want to know more about how I painted it. 

 In other news, I have updated my shop, and have added some MISFIT PRINTS listings. I am basically offering some slightly subpar prints at a discounted price (contrast or saturation off, wrong size…etc…). You get to choose which misfit print you want BUT there aren’t many, so make you sure check them out quickly if you don’t want to miss out. 

Hope you’re all well!

I'm enjoying the different perspectives presented by this image. You could say that the creature is trying to devour her in some way, but another could say that she is being aided by it in some way, perhaps restoring her life force, or even turning her into a creature similar to the one embracing her--a form of transcendence? Excellent work!

Oh, yes, that's a great way of seeing it!! I like to create that duality, and that potential for interpretation in my work :)

That is unsettling.
Some-where between 'sleep paralysis' and 'abducted by alien jellyfish'...
Brrr...
Well done.

Interesting that you see it that way :) I always only saw it as gentle and kind, but I love that others can see all sorts!
