This is powerful because it looks as if the subject is bleached of all color and it was all pulled out of her as if by a strip which is shown in the rainbow colors.

It could also be viewed as an overlay of color from an unknown light source, such as a prism, which can be viewed during certain settings such as sunlight coming in through a glass window and refracting, then reflecting upon the surfaces it touches.

The reason the painting has this effect is due to the lack of saturation in her overall form including the plain-black body, which is flattened and more residual than active.

Due to the unpredictable nature of this piece it stands out more than the serial quality of prior portraits. It is unpredictable because at first glance you think it is a portrait. The strip of color gives more meaning. This theme can be developed further.

This time, the white drips are enhancing the interpretation of her being bleached of color - which symbolizes many concepts such as, life - because they could symbolize her "bleeding".

This is going to be quite hard for me to critique since I love your art and its originality.

As always, you have a very unique style and I love your use of volume. The eyes are very captivating and yet I cannot determine the emotion behind this piece. It can be sad or even somber with the blank expression and white dripping on the shirt, and yet the color across the face throws me off. Is it to highlight the nose and mouth? Is it to bring attention to the sense of smell? It definitely makes one think when admiring this piece.

Ok, first off, this is really hard for me. I've been an admirer of your work for a while now on this account and my first one. As usual,I love your use of color. More so, you managed a strip of color and still kept the underlying structure intact. That's amazing. It really shows off your skill well.

Now the hard part. This is a strong piece, however, I couldn't help but notice that the eyes very large and the top pf the head was elongated. I don't have a problem with going outside of the box as far as anatomy to make things more interesting or improve the composition of the picture. However, I think the enlarged eyes and elongated cranium may be doing more harm than good. I feel like the focus should be on the colorful stripe in the middle of her face, but it gets distracted by the large eyes. eyes by themselves can be very magnetic and larger ones only increase the attention to that area. The elongated cranium may be just me, but when only that area is elongated, it also can take away from the main subject area.

Other than that, this is just wonderful. :3 As always, keep up the good work!

There is something so intriguing about this ... the span of color across the canvas.

... nice one ... :)
the lines from the face, to frame the difference from the 'color stripe' to the face... they just don't seem right. They kind of seem like you threw them in at the end. I think I would have much prefered them in white instead of the grey. Mabye they are just the pencil lines? I do see that you are pushing the boundaries of your 'usual style', and I really do like the piece overall, but since you requested this critique, I thought I would just put my 2 cents in the comments. Love your work.

This is beautiful. The way you've placed the strip of colour over her face works really nicely~
