Guardians of the forest - student project

Thank you so much for this class, Aga! I've seen many amazing works using the negative painting technique, so I was very eager to try it myself. You have really helped me to understand how it works. Now I just need a little more practice, I think.

This is my final assignment. In retrospect, I think I overdid it a bit. I probably should have kept it a little simpler. But that's the thing about watercolours: You have to know, when to stop, otherwise there is no way back...

Some sketches I did beforehand, to figure out the composition and colour scheme:

And my first attempt at the negative painting technique. Some floating cat faces, I suppose.
