An explosion of simple and subtle colours with a depth and expression of kindness.
I made a series of watercolour and ink paintings all with a similar simplistic style and drawing your attentions to the emotion and colour of the eyes. I asked volunteers to take photos of their eyes so I could create my "series of eyes" from them. I have a love for painting eyes as I believe they hold peoples emotions and say more than words could ever.
For this piece I used a few colours which I found compliment each other in a controlled manner. I gave the bold watercolour a structured but free run of the painting and the black ink created a frame for the whole composition. I used my signature technique of allowing the ink to run and drip freely but maintaining a structure to the composition as well.
