This is a fine piece. The blending of the colors on the left, the sharpness of it all, that dripping effect... It all creates this wonderful vision of someone's tears reaching out and creating a sorrowful rain around them. The red-pink tints on the eyes and lips make it seem as if this person is tired from crying and being in pain. The colors on the sides give it all a sort of ordered chaotic look, as if this person is trying to hold back all anger, sorrow, and pain, but fails and seemingly explodes from the mind. This painting seems to overflow with feeling, pulling the viewer into the painting, to understand and sympathize with this person. Truly a gift to the eye.

There is something about this piece that grabs me. It is so emotionally capturing and the sadness and grieving angst actually makes my own heart hurt a bit. Great job my dear.

your use of color is wonderful,,so much emotion,,I love the way the paint runs and bleeds off the canvas. I have missed seeing your work while I was away,it seems to have gotten even better( I didn't think that was possible as your work is so outstanding) I do love your style.

The colors.. everything is just perfect. There is such emotion in this portrait. I am definitely jalous. You are amazing. I think it took me at least five minutes to think about what I was going to say in this comment. I was just staring at your work, speechless. Wow <3

This si beautiful, the colours are amazing and the emotion is so strong, I love it!
thinksimplybig Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist

I've been watching your work for some time now and one thing that I constantly find fascinating
Is your ability to arrest the viewer’s eye but still cause a great amount of movement.
This portrait is no different. From the top where the abstraction starts to the drips running down the page
Are constant curves, reprieves and more curves!

If the line and brushwork were the bullets in the gun your color choice is the gun.
Warm shapes surrounding your coolly concentrated face while the lines of all the above colors
Mingle together in the ways that cause people to look at watercolor and go "well...damn"

And lastly the size which DA can't portray. The size of this is going to leave an impact. When I saw pictures
Of your exhibit before it looked like you hung most pieces up at eye level so it would leave the impression
Of a distorted mirror or a look into the not so understandable.

I always appreciate your work! Very eager to see the coming work!

straight eyes...
sounds-right Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2011   General Artist
strong! the title adds another layer
RinAkurei Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
the eyes... the madness is seeping through them... show the broken soul filled with regret, hate, desperation, need, regret, the want to be alone, the cry for compassion and love...

It's hard to create an art piece that speaks so loudly... yet silently...

I love how anyone who sees this can interpret the emotions however suits them best...

This is a wonderful piece, i love it.

Amazing, such deep emotion, great job!
DavideBoratto Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011
Sorry but I have not a premium membership and I cannot critique your work!
What can I say? Piece of art!
(At my taste i would add a bit more off black ink like other your operas for the deep meaning of the title, but it is not so important...)

Wow, very powerful emotion in this. I kinda started to tear shortly after I saw this, but I think it was because I'm allergic to something in this room, LOL.
