Definitely dark and emtional. I love your signature style, which this represents, but it also leaves me with high expectations. The face is not as beautiful as I usually see from you, which adds to the darkness and sadness of the piece, but it also causes me to like it a bit less. Also the hair sort of catches my eye. The angle of the hair is a little awkward, like horns or like stiff pieces that were placed there on purpose rather than being natural.

Having said that, the piece really is beautiful, creative, original, dark, sad, and well executed. I think I like from the neck down the most, but only because I'm familiar with your work and was not expecting what was done with the head.

I am a big fan of your work. What I like most on this one is the color´s choice, It is really a color palette that fits your work and builds up your style. I do like the freedom of the brushes and how you let the water color do it´s job.

But you asked for critiques so here are my 2 cents. I dont feel that the face is quite as powerful as other works you have. I love how the hands and pose are, but I cant feel much life or feelings in the eyes, and in the face overall. Yes, there is some darkness in it, but I feel that what I like most on your work is that the expressions and the feelings are transparent, like if they stained the canvas. I don´t feel it in this one.

But I do think you are getting into a mastery in controling what is necessary to transmit what you want, and you do have a very personal style.

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 <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

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!

"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?

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!
