Another weel-done piece!
I like her face and also her hair are wonderfull.
The composition is well balanced, and also the decision to make his face more "evanescent" than the detailed face of the girl gives exactly the idea expressed in the title.
As always the colours are great and u can create a nice picture without the use of the black. this sort of overexposure is a tecnique that I envy you :)
Only one note: I don't know if was your intension but his expression seems to be a little bit sad (maybe because the red under his eye).
What do you think?

I love this piece. First of all, it's completely breathtaking. While the colors are muted it speaks so much on it's own. The little details her closed eyes, his tragic expression give a sad yet beautiful atmosphere that speaks to the soul. Not to mention all the individual strands of hair, the eyelashes, and all the tiny details such as his bigger hand and her smaller hand right beside make this piece speak to me. The mild, muted hues make this piece more vibrant and speak emotion into this piece and they were very well placed. It's a unique, fresh experience with a fluidity almost like that of music.

Beautiful and sensitive
you've portrayed the emotion very well, and I like the fine lines and delicate coloring too

Amazing detail

I noticed on the woman, what appeared to be contusions on her neckline and head, and the male subject's knuckles look bruised. Such a sorrowful piece, he looks apologetic or absent and she near kissing the hands. I wonder if this is her showing forgiveness, I wonder if this is a portrait of domestic violence. I'd really love to know if any of this is true, please shoot me a message if you can. I'm a poet, 17 years old, and an art student.

Hi, I love all of your work. You're such an inspiring artist and the reason I have a desire to paint. I've been into painting for about the past year but seeing your work makes me want to try different techniques. I've watched all your videos on YouTube and just hope that one day I can paint as well as you :).

You're work is so delicate and you really use your materials well to create the nearly airy effect, I love that your stuff isn't crowded with bright colours, everything is just all well balanced with the pale tones. Love it.

Excellent work. The red around his eyes and the bruising of the knuckles hint at a back story. Superb.

I love the hair, the man's hand and eye beautiful. I love the emotion shown so plainly in the man and much more reserved, but still obvious in the woman. Describes the way I'm feeling right about now, thank you
