A5 Watercolour Portraits – Set of 5

 

By purchasing this A5 portrait set you will receive all 5 prints: ‘Rest’, ‘Peace’, ‘Softness’, ‘Fierce’, and ‘Resistance’ which have been printed on high-quality 350gsm gloss paper.

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.

 

Softness is a portrait that aims to challenge the ‘strong Black woman’ trope that can dehumanize Black women and suppress our emotions. This painting contrasts this reductionist idea and illustrates a Black woman who is vulnerable, delicate, soft, and worthy of rest.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Resistance is a portrait that signifies the fight for social justice and state accountability.

 

Peace is a portrait that displays the emotional harm of racism and the yearning for a world that fosters peace, safety, and compassion for the Black community.
