While your work is beautiful and this is yet another beautiful piece, I feel like it could be more. Perhaps I am reacting to the overwhelming amount of white (one of my instructors once said that white detracts from art, and should only be used as a highlight, and it's ever-stuck in my mind), but it feels unfinished somehow.
Also, the eyes are a little uneven somehow to me. While that does happen in natural faces, it can sometimes seem like an error in art.
I've also seen you do a lot of passive expressions, and would love to see you play with more. A smile, frown, or contortion in tears would have such an impact.
Now that I'm done with the negative parts I'd like to compliment the good. Your proportions and distribution of features is beautiful and well done. The ink or pencil lines are fragile and interesting in their simplicity, and work well for a contrast with the watercolor. The colors you have chosen are gorgeous, and well placed.
As for moving forward with the piece if you decide to do so, I would add more to it, either some other colors to fill in the rest of the face, or some sort of surrounding color.
Good work and good luck!

First off, what is rather lovely is her eye color. I don't think I've really seen a lot of yellow from you regarding your art, so this sure is something new. But I do believe that this looks pretty unfinished. Perhaps adding more detail or more composition to the piece may do it a bit more justice. There's just places that could be improved a lot that could really make this piece a lot better.

Now I'll move on to the good parts. Like I said above, her eyes are great. In your art, what I've noticed and one of the first things that tend to draw my attention are the eyes. They look so full and life and they really pop out at you and look so realistic. The drip on her left eye makes it look like she's almost crying, it looks a bit like a tear.

In conclusion, while this piece isn't terrible, a lot more details could've easily bumped this piece up from being a good piece to a great piece. Hope I've helped a little bit, and don't worry, I'm not insulting your talent at all, because I know you're an extremely talented artist, just offering constructive criticism.

I loved it from the first glance. I think that minimalism in colors and the style makes it easier to see her personality, and it makes me focus more on the eyes.

Even if it's only a sketch, I usually enjoy minimal works. Maybe because of the good use of white space (not everyone knows how to use the negative shapes to their advantage). I feel like this piece has all that it needs in my opinion. Maybe something that would make it work even better: try portrait instead of landscape and leave more space above (also her look is pointing above) and below.

Hello my always inspiring Agnes. Although I like this drawing a lot, I would say you could have gave put a little bit more of yourself to it. Also, she somehow looks a bit angry..But overall I like it very much :)

Hello Agnes , Another piece of amazing art.. the eyes are marvelous , it looks so simple and yet so elegant simply perfect.. But , for critque I would say you had to zoom in a bit for my taste there is too much white in the drawing.. But then again I m not an artist certainly not at your niveau..

Its kind of creepy. The bangs, actually, are what make it creepy for me. They shorten the face, giving her a slightly misshapen eeriness. Coupling that with the striking eyes, give his a sinister look.

i love how you can see a faint silhouette going down the neck by use of the hair. It adds a sense of definition even when nothing is there.

lovely. it's nice to see a palette less filled every once in a while. it has a charm to its overall simplicity, yet her expression is still complex.

so rough but so amazing in the same time. gives me a feel that she is scared and like, very serious. Like she is about to cry, or she worries about many things.

I wish the gold was confined to her eyes, and perhaps not confined to her iris, but allowed to spread and blend into the rest of the features of her eyes.

Do you start with a light sketch, and then go over it with pen after applying watercolors?
