Oh, you never cease to amaze me.
You have perfectly captured this captivating expression - it draws you into the painting itself. The detail in her face contrasts well with the simplicity of her form & the colors work perfectly in unison. I feel that the two drips that run from her hair and end in geometric shapes should take attention away from her beautiful face - but the more I look at the work, the less it bothers me. Once again you have managed to create perfect harmony in all elements of your work. As for the title - I feel that it adds much more value to this artwork. With one single word you have told the entire story behind her silence, behind her haunting expression. You are a master of your trade and this is by far one of my favorite works. Bravo!

Another great piece in the collection. You have a very good sense of gradation in the value that is used in this portrait. The colors used once again compliment each other quite nicely. Great choice in color too. Colors that I wouldn't think normally go together, you make it work perfectly. The detail in the face are very precise. I really like how the painting fades into detail and then disintegrates and fades out into the drips of color. This, I have to say is one of the main reasons I am such a fan of your work.
Superbly done Sylvia.

This is truly a work of art and it is simply marvelous darling. The detail on the face combined with the beautiful contrast and colour choice provides the viewer with a piece that draws you in and makes you look each little detail and stroke you put into it. My absolute favourite part of this piece is how you made the colours run down the woman and how the brush stroke are not quite visible but still give an over all direction to the piece. It fills this scene with such an intense ominous and mysterious mood. On top of the that the choice to leave the background white relly makes you focus on all of the important stuff including the striking pose. You never fail to impress me.

This painting is superb. The facial features are truly great, they perfectly convey emotion, they actually appear sharp and soft at the same time, drawing the eye right to the face yet connecting to the softness of the body, thereby forming a counterpoint to the rest of the body which balances the piece. The eye is drawn to the face yet still sees the rest of the body.

The colors are perfectly harmonized and the painting technique is amazing!

The balance of the painting is really wonderful. The model is off center yet the effective use of white space and background color perfectly balances the piece. This asymmetrical balancing gives life to the painting, and draws the eye right to the model.

Every aspect of this painting is lively and interesting and holds interest from first glance to careful study.

I love the way she is looking over her shoulder, this creates an atmosphere and gives a bigger impact. Love this as it's a little bit different from what you usually draw.

The colours are very well blended in together and they have a flow which makes her stare have a greater impact on you. I like to see this as though someone who is looking back on his past, but is now ready to move on, obviously everyone will interpret this in his own way.

There's also a very good balance and the composition is great. Funnily enough the face and those geometrical shapes go very well together.

I must say that you've surprised me once again with another one of your beautiful paintings!

have you tried dripping rubbing alcohol on acrylics? If not, it's a neat trick that peels away the paint! (the white speckles reminded me of it) :D

Love this piece btw :blackrose:
