A5 Watercolour Print – ‘Fierce’
‘Fierce’ is a portrait that was painted using bold tones of red and orange watercolours to exhibit the empowering, passionate, and determined nature of Black people in the face of oppression.
Each A5 portrait has been printed on high-quality 350gsm gloss paper and I painted them using watercolours.
I chose a warm-toned watercolour palette for these portraits because I wanted each painting to embody the warmth and emotion of each person.
During the creation of the five portraits, I found that each piece evoked a different emotion or state of softness, fierceness, resistance, rest, and peace that I feel are significant parts of my Black identity.
I found this project a very emotional and beautiful process because I connected deeply with the complex emotions each painting expressed.
