the bitter inbetween by kelogsloops the bitter inbetween by kelogsloops



So I've been experimenting a lot lately with negative space in watercolour
You hear the phrase "less is more" often, and it can be applied in so many different ways. I guess because of that, it's a little vague.
With art, I guess it's about how what isn't on the page can actually be so much more powerful and impactive than what's on it.

The "ibnetwen" taht our mnids flil in atouamtlicly to mkae snese of waht we see. 
If you can read the above, that's just a little something I learnt while studying Psychology. Cool huh?

I've really enjoyed working with negative space, because I find that blank space opens interpretation, and that's something I find endearing.

It's the contrast between what is and what isn't, that's what it is...The result appears somewhere midway between the shade of white and the various colours .......'Cause, after all...What is and what isn't ?

I'm interpreting winter.....maybe freezing cold water in the back..... I know, my mind's obviously not on board to being imaginative at the moment, but i could read your jumbled sentence..... what does that say about me.....-_-

You learn to misspell in psychology? — Haha, just kidding. ;)

I like how part of the hair is only visible where her head's shadow comes over it, and how you have only one side of her hair brushed behind her ear. :) The backdrop is also pretty interesting!
