Watercolour Illustrations by Agnes Cecile.

 I really like the lived-in drips, paint specks and the overall painterly feel of these beautiful watercolours by artist, Agnes Cecile. Watercolour is one of my favourite mediums alongside ink (my go to for this is always Windsor & Newton) both due to the fluid, organic forms that you can create, which would be harder to render in acrylic or oil. Also due to transparency of watercolour you are more able to build up layers or rectify mistakes. There is something hugely satisfying about watching droplets of ink bleed and disperse out into water, which each time turn out differently from the last.
