green care by agnes-cecile green care by agnes-cecile

I need to make practice on backgrounds, lasts that I made were for school. I'd like to do a softer watercolor, also less realistic.. I'll make others.
Anyway, I think that the photo that I used here is quite lovely, check it: ..and I'm so envious of such flourishing plants. :D

watercolor on Watercolor Moleskine Notebook (200g)

This is lovely. You did an excellent job of translating the picture into a painting. You utilized your talent for abstract water color to soften the source picture. It gives the painting a sense of being out of time and space.
Your use of space reminded me of any of Johannes Vermeer's paintings but especially "Woman reading a letter" and "The Milkmaid".
Your background, like his did, draw the attention as much as the figures or "actions" occurring of in painting. It gives the painting a holistic feeling. It's peaceful without being empty. The colors are vibrant but not overpowering. The eye can take in the whole thing or examine little details without being overwhelmed.
All in all, I found your painting beautiful to look at and a real tribute to your skill.

I loved the depth of this art piece, the colors are well played out for the characteristics of this detailed painting! I love how it is being portrayed~ I am a nice person but I am fairly honest and give great help to those who need it. This is an excellent piece, keep up the spectacular work that pierces people in the hearts. I know this painting probably doesn't mean something but if it does whether or not I just would like to say that this painting has cut me in the heart and I wanted to critique this one so badly~ "Critiqued by Critique-for-All"

I like this it’s a beautiful observation of a person who seem transfixed in that they are doing, you look at it silence as not to disturb them , I like it a lot.

This is such a delicate piece, it's absolutely beautiful. Probably one of my favorite ones from your gallery because it deviates from your normal paintings, and yet it encompasses so much of your style! I love the colors that you used, especially the yellow :) It really pops.

This piece is so calming. As cool as the colors are, there's a perfect amount of warmth coming in from the window, and from the girl. I love this.
