I'll start this off by saying, as always, your skills with watercolor are great. What I've noticed in your recent paintings is that while it's chaotic, there's still some kind of order there. The colors that you use aren't "random splatters" for I've noticed that it seems that you know which color goes where and that you aren't simply using colors mindlessly. For on the left side of her face, you can see blue and some yellow, orange, and maybe even pink giving it a calm, maybe even "pretty" feeling. But if you look to the right of her face, you see purple and yellow, giving it a somewhat supernatural feeling. So there seems to be a definite color scheme that is controlled within all the splatters and drips. And of course, her gorgeous eyes, they look so glazed and it really looks like she's staring directly at you with this melancholic kind of nonchalant gaze. You paint eyes so good, it's mind blowing how good you are with them.
However, the reason why I'm giving this such a low rating in "Originality" is because I feel as though I've seen this from you before. The whole "watercolor portrait" thing is seriously an incredible idea and you pull it off in such a mind-blowing fashion with all of the crazy drips and splatters and colors and the way you depict figures, etc, etc. But I personally feel like it would be nice if you tried something new. Once again, I'm not insulting your talent as an artist, I'm just saying that it may become boring after a while if you paint the same subject over and over again and that trying something new would be cool. As Henri Matisse said: "An artist must never be a prisoner. Prisoner? An artist should never be a prisoner of himself, prisoner of style, prisoner of reputation, prisoner of success, etc." Hope I wasn't harsh.
Fantastic and Surreal. Imaginative and very creative. I love the emotional feel to this piece and most of your work. The free handed flow is beyond measure and leaves alot to the imagination. Your art is emotional which is key to abstract art. Going beyond the lines and letting the paint dance upon the paper or canvas. I am beginning my journey to learn this technique as I have acomplished it with Acrylics and Oils now onto watercolor. Your Art shows the viewers you can do abstract with watercolor as the medium. I also love the way the viewer connects with the eyes and the person yet the colors take you away on a flight of fancy. Bravo !!
i love that on ethin black line that starts on the left side of the head and trails off into the next page. it seems like an odd thing to like but it really creates the movement in this piece. love the rest of it too.
I love the composition of this painting and how it's so busy and concentrated in the lower right corner and just kind of spills across the canvas. As always, your portraits are stunning and I love the combination of colors you used!
