db Waterman Profile picture "The Vibrant Girl" captures the essence of youth and resilience in a mixed-media portrait. In a kaleidoscope of orange and aqua layers, the portrait of the girl radiates with an unmistakable energy, symbolizing the vibrancy of life. The contrasting hues reflect her lively spirit and the complexity of her emotions.

In this Mixed Media painting , with a background of concrete and rust, you can see the contrast of urban decay and the radiant presence of the girl. The interplay between the warm, vibrant tones and the cool, industrial textures suggests a harmonious balance between strength and fragility. The concrete and rusty elements represent the challenges and hardships she faces, while her vibrant colors indicate the resilience she overcomes.

I used several techniques for this Mixed Media / Collage portrait.
Painted concrete backgrounds mixed with watercolor layers. Over that, a drawn and painted face of a young woman.
And finally transparent layers partially falling over the girl.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
