This large watercolour of an angel, face in silhouette and hand raised in peace was inspired by a gif that I saw on Twitter, of a woman with a raised hand and moving, flowing streams of energy at her back.
I wanted to create a very simple but intense image so have used a limited but striking palette of gold gouache with a hint of brown, turquoise and purple watercolour on black Khadi handmade paper.
The last three photos show the painting in progress.
