For this image, which might be an allegory on clearing your mind, renovating the head or at least thinking the other way round, I thought the other way round...
I started with the computer; made lines that I printed out and then went over with wide watercolour washes. I usually finish with computer, and if I work by hand, I start there... Then I scanned the lot and added details digitally; the flags and tape, the rose and other lesser things. This way we got both precision -- where sought for -- and living sweeps.
I like the red balloon. Gives one hope, doesn't it?
This part -- as usual, I don't know what it means. If it does.
