Smudge - 12x18 Original in watercolour and acrylic on heavy acrylic paint paper.
The colour palette reflects the mother of pearl inside the abalone shell we use to smudge, almost like an oil slick on a puddle... I think it’s really beautiful. The silhouette was inspired by an old photo. For those who may wonder, I often push my lines right to the edge of the paper because for me my canvas border is the “circle” that makes my artwork whole.
All prints on 100lb matte paper.
