Wow! That is almost all I can say!!! It looks like she is haunted by a ghost almost posesed but not quite. Watercolor is your most amazing medium but this is very pretty also. Your color pallet is georgious! Everything just seems to go together. Some of the "drips" acctually look like they were done in water color. The eyes could have had a bit more life in them but if you were going for the kind of a posesed look you are right on spot! This is another one of your best! I absalutely love how you painted in a bit of the background but not too much of it. Your style is truly original, I have never seen anyone do such amazing watercolors (this is an oil?) Well Eather way you are truly a great artist!
What do you think?

I LOVE this piece. Its so darkly beautiful. It's such a dark image that has such an almost light outlook. The colors and lines just let the picture flow so gracefully. It carries a subconcious feeling of movement thats just breath taking. The way all of your other pictures do. I find it very pleasing when I look at a piece and know right away that THAT person did it. Your style is "you" and i like that. The emotion in this piece is very well projected also. It's as if the woman featured here has some story waiting to be told. Overall (in my opinion) another great peice as always :D

"It was your poison love which turned me against myself. You saw through me that I didn't believe I was worth better, and you took away even the little self-love that I had. Now I crave the love you give me, even as I hate myself for wanting it. I'm not sure I love you, I'm not sure you love you. I just think neither of us knows how to turn bitter water into sweet. I'll never know unless I get away, but I'm too afraid to leave. There's a romantic glamour to this tragedy I wrap myself in, but I can't look too deep in my own eyes for the void that stares back through them. Reject it, reject it, a still small voice in me cries!"

can anyone help me with creating drips like those on canvas? When I try to create drips, I add water to the paint but it doesn't stay on the canvas, can anyone help with this problem?

E' diventato uno dei quadri che adoro in assoluto :heart: mi ha rapito da quando l'ho visto :heart: lo adoro :heart:

I just love this. The melting body, blank look in the girl's eyes, stranglement - it's a very intense piece.

I adore this. You didn't make the face super gorgeous, BUT i like it more because you did that, considering the mood of the piece. I guess I may be biased because I just am crazy for your style :) Also, the hair really caught my eye, and I was kind of curious as to why you chose that, but again, i think it works with the mood including the fact that she is suspended looking--literally and figuratively I suppose. Really, nice job!

Excellent work. I like it! This one is a little darker than your other works. I wish there was a close up of her face. Her eyes seem to be communicating something.... je ne sais quoi... dangerous. The hands are also very well done, strangling hands.
I like Spanish too - wish i could speak it. :-)

:heart it so much. I'm doing watercolors in a style like this currently but I'd like more saturated colors quicker and was contemplating acrylic. I've seen people combine them, any experience with that?

This is great. I've always loved your work. Do you use photo references or are you making these up from scratch?:)
