I love your work! So let's get to the critique :)
For vision I gave you five stars: the piece itself looks amazing. Some of colors are very dark which is different than what I've seen in most watercolor painting. These dark colors are really make the brighter ones pop and darkness of the actual face brings the attention.
For originality I gave you four stars: I would have given you more but let's face it, for hundreds of years people have done portraits of human faces but the way you portray the human face is unique and very loose which puts more emotion behind even a blank face.
For technique I gave you five star: I've watched some of you speedpaints on YouTube and I have come to the conclusion you have somewhat of a mastery on painting. You know how to use the materials you do and it shows.
For impact I give you five stars: There always seems to be something haunting about your artwork, often sadness or emptiness and this is no exception. I find it interesting how despite the emptiness the emotion still seems to remain slightly hidden which is different from many artists whom take a more direct approach. Though subtle spproachs make more of an impact.
Overall the piece shows great expertise and is really cool. Looking forward to your next work :)

HEADCRASH!!! When things pile up on you your head feels like it's gonna explode and you get a HEADCRASH!! And you're seeing it right here! I really like the stunned and hopeless expression that you've blended in. Really really cool.

I love that the right eye is smudged. I think it adds to the concept. :) Or what I perceive the picture to portray, for it is different for everyone.

I like the background, but maybe the expresion is so hard, I mean, you could mix the lines of the expresion with colours and not only do the face with dark colours.

But I like the combinations of the backgrounds so much!
