Well to start off I see a woman dipping her
head into water, she is on her knees and grasping
he edge of the pool.
I's fairly certain that your image did represent that quite well.

As for originality I've seen many people do this, but to be
honest it didn't seem to have a story, unlike yours. She seems to be washing
away something she regrets, the black bathing suit shows she's
uncomfortable with who she is....maybe she wants to find a new realm to
be herself. The colorful hair seems as if she struggles to keep herself together.

Your technique is fantastic (as usual) with the was you use the water colors and white pen in
such simple ways it creates a image that people can't take their eyes
away from!

Overall I would like to say I love your work and this piece shows how skilled you
are to use so little for so much.
Bravo.

The direction of this and your last painting has the direction of . . . death.  Maybe it's just me, but I see a change in atmosphere.

Fantastic work as usual, Agnes! Such beautiful, soft colors.
And I don't know if it's just me, but the composition of this piece kind of makes it look like the paper is rectangular, slightly taller than wider, when it is in fact a perfect square. That's kinda crazy.
