Gouache Watercolours

I’m currently making self-portraits using gouache. I’m finally getting the hang of the materials. Images will follow shortly. I drew a heart using a technique similar to Louise Bourgeois’ late red washes where much of the inspiration comes from.

I feel as though I’ve had a creative breakthrough in making these pictures, it feels like I’ve been able to really let myself go and delve into difficult emotional territory. It’s been cathartic. It’s allowed me to experience negative feelings and then take a step back afterwards. It’s like some sort of exorcism.
