it inspires me thoughtlessness that leads to a pitiful and confused state, that if you make yourself drag along it might pull you down, in short, thoughtlessness refers to the levity of the hair (watercolor really fits that), that ends up disintegrated (the technique is cool). It's hard to tell, but you can only guest on the outside as a viewer, by details in the hair and also the agony reflected on the face. One thing, her head is too up. In that perspective it seems that she looks angry and arrogant at the same time. But it's quiet good

Masterfully painted, it's incredible to watch what at first is simply colour become something truly beautiful to behold. The chaos is contained in this particular piece which gives me the feeling that you're restraining the chaos i'm used to seeing in your work Agnes, such as restraint or your drip works! The video was beautifully constructed and the music accompanied it perfectly, i'd love to get into your mind to understand what strange and brilliant ideas are floating around in your head!
Never stop painting, your work has inspired many, myself included, and i can't wait to see what's next in store!

I loved it!

Me encanta la manera de como en cada trabajo se pueda apreciar en profundidad el sentimiento de la obra y como los colores ayudan para ello. La expresión por sobre todo siempre predomina en su obra, su estilo artístico es una buena mezcla entre lo clásico y lo contemporáneo, lo cual hace que sea muy original. Su dominio con la acuarela es fantástico. Me llama muchísima la atención como invierte los colores, en el sentido de que pocas veces usa los colores reales, por ejemplo rostros color verde y todas sus degradaciones, cabellos azules, entre otros. A mi parecer sus creaciones son muy personales, y me gustaría seguir viendo más. Quisiera ver que tal los paisajes o animales, sé que me sorprendería.

well done!
this is an other great work (particullarly it is my favorit)
the lips, nose and eyes are really expressive and the hair are wonderfull, a lot of movement. your use of this white backgrounds permits to put at the first level your subjects. usually the white backgraound gives a sence of unfinished and, in watercolurs, plays a diffucult role in balancing the light/shadows, but in your case I think that the subjects of your works are full of light despite the light from the back.
I'm curious to see one of your figure with a coloured backgroubn (I don't know if you have one on DA).

I really liked the film you made to this painting and how you begin your work. The choice of colours is great, though the hair could have gotten a bit more darkness to it. The hair is all over, perhaps that is meant to be, or not. But if you decide of a direction the motion and flow of the hair will be more harmonic to look at. It is a good angle of the face, though there is something more needed to convince me of the angle, perhaps exaggerate the eyes a bit more. I really like how you started out your painting and I shall try it out myself.

I enjoy your work very much. It is similar to an artist named Morton Solberg, although we focuses on animals. Please keep posting.
