watercolour, gouache, ink and pencil
148mm x 210mm, 2019
Created in 2019, Frida is a watercolour, gouache, ink and pencil artwork created by Zyra Bañez as a form of experimentation with colour and style.
In the previous years, Zyra’s artworks involved limited and muted colour palettes influenced by minimalism. However, in 2018 and 2019, it was time to move away from neutrals and embrace a bit of colour, or perhaps a lot.
As a form of experimentation, solid colour blocks, bold shapes and plant imagery became consistent in Zyra’s artworks.
Further into 2019, this style became more refined, which was even accompanied by a drawing tutorial video explaining in full detail how to achieve the exact same style using mixed media.
