Experimenting with the double exposure technique, "Untamed" is a piece that reflects upon the African culture and wild life. Associating the female subject with red, the colour of energy and power, she becomes a portrait for African beauty. Through its cold colour, the lion, representation of animalistic power and wildness, shows the untamed instinct. In this piece, I wanted to accentuate both symmetry and a link between two symbolic elements.
Watercolour pencils, white charcoal pencils and a white gel pen were all used on the black A4 paper.
