This work is honestly delightful. It seemingly combines various mythological attributes and characteristics. It, clearly, houses the horn of a unicorn. As well as the rainbow, which is usually associated with leprechauns. It is just that the rainbow, here, is shown like multi-colored water streaming down the front of her. The vague outline of a woman could even be interpreted as a spirit. What is beautiful is the slight collection of color under the chin, as if it actually does have fluid characteristics. This image is, honestly, a spectacular to behold in it's simplicity. What would have been a profound amount better would be if the horn, itself would be different tones of grey per length area. Or, even feature just minuscule portions of color flecks in it as if it actually was shining in the light. The featuring of the female body in it's natural frontal form, without the over enhancements that celebrity status representatives have falsely bestowed upon our typical imaginations, is proper. It Ian't thrown towards you to connect arousal. Neither is it barely noticed, which would have been an insult to the female modeled in this creation. This artist focuses more towards the enlightened prospective of actual imaginative use in all parts, save for the one I mention. In which that is only deemed not such in my eyesight. I wonderfully applaud Agnes for the actual application of having the viewer throw more in with their mind's own creative artist of imagination added more for their personal enjoyment. This woman is an artist. Her art shines. Just as this unicorn woman shines in multi-toned light. Congratulations, my friend.

I'm enjoying these newer works. The composition of the positive and negative space are well thought out. And I love how you used the dripping of the rainbow to imply the anatomy of the figure- especially in the lower jaw/ neck area. I also like how the shoulder is implied with two or three simple lines. A great decision as I think if it were detailed it would draw the eye away from the focal point. The face is extremely well rendered, however I think to make it pop out just that much more I would have put a light wash of ivory black or payne's grey behind the head cutting it off at a certain point to not affect the negative space. And, as any artist--- I just have one little nitpick. I know it's just a photograph and it might not be the ENTIRE view of the piece, but my eye just wants to cut and inch or two off that horn so it's not so close to the edge of the page. I realize from a technical standpoint you probably used the horn to aesthetically draw the veiwer's eye to the figure or the focal point. But, other than that, I love everything else!

I love your form of imagination. This painting is very beautiful.

Something about this makes it stand out beyond the rest  ... maybe the simple human figure? Or maybe how the black horn turns into a beautiful ray of color? I like how the red lips and blue eyes line up together perfectly on the woman and her rainbow.
Love it GIF 
Neverless, I really love this picture and will definitely buy a print of it!

When I saw the thumbnail but before I saw the title, I thought the horn was a paintbrush. Of course it's GORGEOUS as it is, but I'd love to see on paper what I see in my head... a woman's form in rainbow colors dripping from the tip of a paintbrush. Your art is amazing and beautiful, and you are truly inspiring! <3

She most likely doesn't have time to. Not everyone can respond to questions/comments, let alone get on everyday like the majority of artists on here. I, for one, never thank for favourites anymore for it's seemed to be more and more common for people to just comment without seeing who actually liked your art. -shrug- Just seems like spam in my eyes.

So cool to see something so different in terms of content for you but still in your style! It must have been hard to get the colors to run where you wanted them to, especially going over all the contours of the body, so I am very impressed by that.
