Aisha (pensive)

22" x 15", watercolour, 2007

Experimenting with opacity vs transparency here, I painted the background and lower right area of Aisha's shirt with dark watercolours, then applied a thin wash of white ink after it had dried. The effect is interesting, and I experimented further with light-over-dark painting after that, but only in oils (noticeably in this painting and this other one).
