This might just be my impression, but the female's eyes look so alive; full to the brim with energy. The male's on the other hand, seem to be staring off in the distance, looking right through the viewer. Mostly likely this is due to the colors that were used around the eyes. Green gives off the impression of vivacity, where blue is mellow, calm, and transparent with emotions. Not to mention, the way the female's head is angled creates the impression that she is in control of her self. She is looking AT us.

I absolutely love the colors. They emphasize the simplicity of the painting itself, drawing attention to the faces of the people. On the note of simplicity, however, I wasn't sure what the painting is trying to convey, if anything. It seems as if it should be trying to communicate something, but I'm not sure what. (I also didn't understand the meaning of the title, but unless it correlates to the concept of the painting, it doesn't matter much.)

Proportions are very good and the subjects are lifelike. I'm not a painter in the least, but I do love the technique of letting the watercolors flow down the painting. It give it another element of dynamic texture.
All in all, beautifully done.

So here it goes. This is one of the paintings that caught my eye the most. Your lines are very strong in a soft way, And also you caught the eye expression so well, and that's one of the most difficult things to be done. It's like their eyes pop out from the whole painting, they are so vivid and deep almost as I can see their souls. The stain use complements it perfectly, giving it that ''messy'' effect of the watercolor.

But what I really loved on it, was the color choice you've done! The colors fit together so well, and the contrast they make with their cold faces, is what gives life to it :)

You're a great artist, and you're technique is unique.
