Very subtle piece of work. The colours are rather warm, but against the white background its almost as if she is fading away or trying to hide her passions and blend in but be noticed to the right eye. Personally i think it would look better on a beige or tea stained kind of background, its too subtle on the white for me, needs just a tiny bit of contrast in there, some darkness behind the beauty, something striking, even if it is subtle. I have images of a very fine city skyline in black pen in my head as i gaze at this. Drawn behind this image, it would lift this sketch of the page. It has the va va, but it needs the voom. Very nice piece none the less, i do love the way you work with colour, even with minimal paint on the paper it still looks beautiful and striking. The visual artist has colour flowing from her vision to paint the world how she see's fit. I like it, keep it up

This is a wonderfully haunting piece, much more intriguing then the previous piece I critiqued.

In many ways, it is frightening, as if the upper portion of the face is being blown apart. At the same time, it is calming, and uplifting due to colour choice - which only adds a level of macabre to the art.

In this case, the technique is seamlessly employed to create a consistent, flowing narrative. Whereas the last piece I critiqued seemed forced to work work the colours, this one pulls everything together in such easy fashion - as if the final outcome was meant to be.

Despite being much like the rest of the artist's portfolio, this piece stands out as bold and beautiful. The serene face, explosion of bright, happy colours, really set this piece out. If I had my way, this would be a DD for sure!

My first impression of this piece was that the radiant splashes of colours in the upper part, form 2 fists rubbing the eyes or wiping the tears of the characters face. This is the thing about the abstract touches in your work which let the mind wonder off to create a story behind. Maybe it's just my depressing vision rather than what you tried to convey, nevertheless it's very personally striking, love it!

I love this...the use of space and the detail and highlighting on the lips and the way the colours softly blend into each other. Just gorgeous.

I don't think is that to me it look more like post scan editing (for the smallest parts) combined with careful area filling.

As usual, I'm struck by your ability in your works formal aspects. The level of detail is enough, but not too much. Im Im not sure what type of feedback you're looking for exactly but considering its size, I'd say you could call it done or go back. It just depends what exactly you're trying to convey and how openly you'd like to convey it.

Nice. I disagree with the critique in that I feel like any additions would detract from the concept. Good job.

I do feel as though her facial expression should have been different. Perhaps a subtle smile. Although, I'm just going on what I think your concept is.

you could also add more water, it usually helps the blending and lightening of the colors :)

Stupendo come tutti gli altri, le labbra sono stupende e il contrasto dei colori magnifico *___* Posso osare una domanda (se hai voglia di rispondere, altrimenti non fa niente): per i riflessi delle labbra usi un qualche bianco dopo aver colorato oppure lasci con gli acquerelli tutti gli spazi bianchi per i riflessi?

My Italian is weak, so without reading the description I thought, I love how you placed so much colour in the eyes, it's symbolic for light. Great work, as usual!
