I simply love this artwork. i also have long hair so i can relate to the flowing lines and playing with my hair. The colours blend beautifully and flow with the strands of the hair. Great use of the mixed medium.The small details of outline in the body really help to tell you what is actually going on which i really appreciate. The detail in the eye then just adds that overall POP that makes the artwork come alive and adds the element of realism to the fantasy. Very dynamic , canvas used well and the fact that you didn't overwork it(which is one of your traits i know) keeps the idea of fantasy. The theme is carried out strongly . The artwork is simplistic in a sense that it emphasizes the potency of the theme. You very successfully say so much with what looks like very little, but i do know how much work and planning could easily go into a watercolour because you cant remove anything and it seems to do what it wants to do. I can really appreciate this artwork because it impacts so powerfully , even more so because of my personal association .
What do you think?

Okay, let's try this critique thingie :D
I'll do this because I think the art is stunning and pretty to the max!
Things I love about this painting:
-The little blob of purple on her right arm, as I think it ads some extra dimension to the pic ^^
-Her eyes, both looking amazing. The one hid behind her hair is barely visible, but yet you get the feeling that there's an entire realistic eye underneath it.
-The combination of colors is really cool. I think he way the blue and purple blend together so nicely with red and yellow is just stunning.
The way that you created the lines in her hair is really skillfull -I think-.
I can think of a whole story behind this awesome hair, so impact is very good~
Not sure if it's entirely original, but I've never seen something really similar
Great work, love it<3 I would love to have her hair :XD:

I love this piece, because (after seeing the WIP on Youtube) it inspired me to try watercolors.  Now, I can use paint more then I ever thought I could!  Thank you so much for inspiring me!

Your colours are wonderful - I'm so jealous of artists who can use water colours. The composition is good and your lines are so delicate. I love the striking effect of the yellow and red with the purple and blue - they bring out the best in the colours.Clap

Hi Agnes! Can I use this for my Facebook cover photo? I will credit properly, of course. If anything, I'd brag about your art. Thanks either way. ~
