Francois Henri Galland is an artist who produces watercolour paintings that resemble bodily imprints. Created in pastel colours with almost transparent layers of paint these pieces are truly beautiful expressing the fragility of the human body. The artist allows the paint to bleed out creating various suggestive bodily shapes and poses which engages the viewers to complete the paintings with their own imagination. His work has really inspired the way I document and develop my sketchbooks in expressing the human form and the sensations of being in a body.
