Imagino Characters series
Creating watercolours characters came from a brief thought I had, making something fully spontaneous, using water to collaborate in the process. I started by painting shapes with water onto the paper, randomly adding colours to the water, letting it dry. The colour paint will change, move, mix and blend while drying, which was really amusing to me. Once it was dry, an image appeared, very different to what I started with. I would look at the shape, then draw with pen what I saw, as I saw it. I wanted the process to be freestyle and almost non-stop. I made one character and found myself with more, as I enjoyed so much. They represent to me, new friends, almost like the type you have when you are a kid, imaginary ones. They come from an image I see, that then gets interpreted in my mind, and becomes a colourful character, which I play with. To view the process click here: Ma'am Coral painting
