Watercolours on Washi Paper

I make plant-based watercolour to explore the agency of materials. The fully absorbent Washi paper allows the plant-based colours to enter into chemical reactions with each other based on their pH value and produce a myriad of colours. ‘Fire’ was made with hibiscus, red currant, peppermint, and turmeric.
