In Repose by kelogsloops In Repose by kelogsloops
I had this vision of this stoic figure standing in a field that swayed back and forth, gracefully with the breeze in a state of tranquility. It was an image that fleshed out into this piece so fluidly, and I thought it would be perfect to experiment a little with double-exposure. It's what spurred me to try negative watercolouring, a technique that I've seen here and there, but never really bothered to try out as it seemed quite time consuming. Aaaand boy, was it worth it.

Surprisingly, it was actually quite therapeutic and relaxing to do negative watercolouring, and the outcome effect paid off! Of course, it wouldn't be complete with blush metallic :)



Some more of my work:

Well most of the time when I use Metallic blue its in a paint, that I mix my self.  The Metallics I get come in shades of gray so its quite easy to add an different color to the lightest one.

Yes! metallics don't show up well on scanners, and scanners tend to wash pictures out, so i edit them in PS :D

Wow, I love this, and I have to say that the way the fern leaves float across her dress!  Is that the "negative watercoloring" you speak of?
Reply
:iconkelogsloops:
kelogsloops Featured By Owner May 17, 2016
YES! That's negative watercolouring! It's just the process of painting the reverse of what you would typically, to create or define a shape/form.
