Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Watercolour of two women toching hands.

Warm and cool, opposites in colour but surrounded by a happy yellow. One woman with eyes open, woven flowing grey /silver hair, gazing at her friend; the other eyes closed, warm, russet, gold, smiling ... perhaps it is two facets of the same lady at two different times in her life?

My current fascination is highlighting with gold gouache on the lovely textured paper (see other pictures in this series) and here I have added silver acrylic to balance the gold. I also enjoy painting lacy dresses and fabulous jewellery.

I adore painting on this heavyweight cotton rag handmade paper from India, with its lovely textured surface and deckled edge (visible in the close-up pictures)

Sold unframed, presented in acid-free tissue in a reinforced envelope.

Size A4 - 21 x 30 cm / 8 x 12 inches
pencil & watercolour on 320 gsm textured Khadi Indian handmade paper with deckled edge.
