To tell you the truth, this isn't the kind of art i would actually click on and look at. But getting me to click on it, appreciate it, favorite it and write a critique on it, this means serious buisness.
This piece is just so beautiful in every single way, its going to be hard to describe with words.
I'll talk about the face to begin with.
It's perfect. Her eyes are perfect her nose, her lips..
she has this wonderous expression on her face that makes this piece appeasing.
The colors are also amazing. It fits with the look on her face and the expression that's manifested.
Also, the butterflies make it that much more appeasing and nice to look at. You have a great imagination! Everything looks so wonderful.

you have done a great job, and you have opened my eyes to a kind of art i didnt pay attention to before.
Congratulations on your talent ;)

This a magnificent piece. What specifics techniques did you use to make the butterfly's? Was it wet on dry? It looks so fabulous. I love how the colors compliment each other and not distract each other from the whole. Great use of the,what it looks like, the sparkles from the eyes. They look so as if she is glancing to an unknown image off to the side. Her expression is almost scared, but yet feminine at the same time. I just love this whole piece. It's hard to pick just one spot to have a good opinion on. There are truly no " improvements" that I can't see. Just a beautiful watercolor.

I own a print of this in my home and never tier of it even after several years. My favorite art piece I own by far. I hope one day I can come to one of your shows in Italy. I'd buy all of your art if I could afford to. Keep creating breath taking pieces of art. ❤

do you have a place to be able to buy prints?

Amazing. Your artworks are very daring, which I adore.
i would never dare to splat paint all over a drawing, or have colors go to different directions.
But the thing is, that if you do it right, it will look magnificent.

Hi there, your work is absolutely breathtaking. Do you create and sell one of a kind pieces? I'm looking for a new piece of art but I don't want something that everyone else can have. Something quite like all of your art. 
Please get in touch!

i love the way you use the thin white lines to enhance the details. they're perfection. and the very strong and expressive look in the character's eyes. adn the way you execute the watercolor. what a beautiful visual melody.

Agnes,  I have a question~ How do you exactly change your scans to pretty pictures like this? I mean, how do you get your colors to be this vibrant? Do you use curves in Photoshop? Please let me know, I really struggle to get my pieces to come out nicely.

This is beautiful! I'm going to start painting with watercolors soon. Is it hard? did you learn yourself or were you taught?

I'm going to learn off the internet,is that ok?

That is so cool. It looks so realistic. How long have you been doing this sort of art, and is it hard? I have been drawing with graphite pencil for about a year but I was thinking of trying another medium, but I am not sure which one yet. I have been looking for some ideas. Anyway, love the picture. It is amazing.
