A5 Watercolour Print – ‘Rest’
‘Rest’ is a portrait that emphasizes the importance of rest for the Black community. Rest is an act of resistance and vital for our healing in a world where we are continuously faced with racial traumas.
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.
