Invisible Woman

Based on Zhuhai’s famous rocks near the Zhuhai Ferry port, I attempted to paint the hundreds of rocks near the shore. Whilst staring at the shapes, I thought I spotted the shape of a woman, the bent knee in the top left, body and face…so if you look at the image closely you can see the lines of a woman laying down.
