|Matilda, Lady of Mystery|
Acrylic and ink - Jez
Why the mystery? Because you can't tell whether she is outside and quite happily looking IN to somewhere interesting, or inside looking OUT rather pensively because ...... well, I don't quite know where she could be looking out from. What do you think?
I was wondering yesterday what I could create in a different way for Monday. I flipped the pages of the sketchbook I was using and found this drippy image in acrylics which I painted a week or two ago and was not too pleased with, so it didn't progress beyond this, and was clearly waiting for its moment to come.
I had the idea of painting a girl's face and digitally superimposing the drippy image on top of it.
No sooner thought than done, and I quickly sketched and painted Matilda in about ten minutes.
With the two images imported into Photoshop, and the drippy page cropped, I inserted Matty behind the drips, or the drips on top of Matty depending on how you look at it. I leave it to you to write the story behind the image. Thank you for visiting.
