This project is about identifying mood changes and emotional states. Gathering information from personal experiences and those of women I know, I created a character, Argha. She represents the complexity of the thinking system which influences female behavioral dynamic. States of mind are represented by the illuminated layers, painted using ink and watercolor. Each layer represents a different mental situation and reaction.
