I'm FREEEEE! I just finished my final week of exams and assessments for the semester!
Not that I'm complaining or anything, I'm just relieved to have made it outta that stressful week :D The great thing about it though, was that we finally got to animate something in class for the first time, so now I'm an official (not really) animator, WOOHOO!

This little lady is a little experimentation with negative space and using masking tape to create geometric bordered backgrounds, like so.

Would love to hear what you guys think :D

Is there a print for this piece? 
If I hung this one up in my living space, I would stare at this for a good 30 mins. after a long day from work XD
Beautiful tint of mysterious and elegant.

30 minutes?! Thats a long time!
Haha but seriously, thank you so much for the kind words! I don't think I'll be turning this little lady into a print anytime soon though!

I love this piece! It's very peaceful. The roses are extremely beautiful too. I like that you didn't detail the painting and just have that strong blue stripe in the background. It gives the piece strength. I see you've used the negative watercolour technique in In Repose, you could use masking tape for that as well, especially if you want to keep thin details. Can't wait to see more! I'm a very very big fan of yours, as you well know ^^

Talk soon,

Sacha :)

Thank you Sacha for the kind words!
Indeed, it's often really difficult to judge between excessively detailing and knowing when and what to strip back to balance it all, so I guess this was a bit of a experimentation and practice in seeing what can be stripped back, especially with negative space.
