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:
