Your piece is stunning! Drawing the viewer's attention immediately with the red color and contrast of white paper. The technique of watercolor and washout splash marks makes the piece visually unique. The only reason I gave you 4 starts in vision and originality is that I have seen this style done before and with cleaner lines. It's hard to explain, but the splash marks are too blended in some areas. Specifically the arms. However, I understand if that was intensional, but it doesn't look good to me like that. So, aside from that small thing, your take on this piece is amazing and beautiful. Nice.

Best,

This is a very emotionally powerful piece. The details are outstanding, and I love the way you managed to convey mood and expression without drawing eyes. I honestly love this piece and everything is expresses. It looks complete and finished in a way thats not overwhelming and is very aesthetic to the eye even though it is one color in many different shades. The way you painted the hair is interesting, and looks very realistic, and draws your eyes to the hands, which are the most expressive part of this piece. The only thing I'm left with wondering is why you chose to do it in red- but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for this! It's a pleasure to be viewing

I found this painting very powerful. Its all done in red, a color that speaks of action and motion. Yet the eyes are covered and the entire painting gives off a feeling of water and vague passivity. The composition is not very dark at that bottom, but rather all the color is towards the middle... it make it feel more up in the air.

To me personally the piece felt like a person in transition, in the middle of choosing between new action and old form. They cannot see in front of them yet they choose to move. At the bottom of the painting theres a white line near the armpit area, I like to imagine thats an option as to where the arm could be. Like instead of raising to combat the air/life, it could stay down and protect the body. The way its a child just seems to symbolize vulnerability.

good proportions, that's what allures me! Reminds me of birth, must be the red and the manner of the character.
I do like how it looks like patches sown together, I don't know if that was on purpose or just the result of the medium but I love it,very flesh like, I get the impression of pain and rebirth from it.
I like how the rest of the body isn't there either, almost like it is still developing, still forming.
Hope to see more work like this in the future, really enjoyed this piece.
Good job! It works :j * * yes

Wow! You have incredible technique by the way. I like the way you let it bleed in certain spots while adding finer detail in other areas. It makes the piece more appealing to look at. Also, I'm really impressed with how dynamic you were able to get with just the color red! Did you intend to leave the background for a particular reason? Just curious.

Even though I don't know the inspiration behind your painting, this seems very meaningful and symbolic. I myself want to get more into watercolor and oil paints. I've been experimenting with pastel a lot. Anyway, Awesome job here!

I'm not very good at critiquing art, so probably don't take my words too seriously. I really like the rawness in the color and the revealing of material that is so free—you can see clearly the fluidity of the color. Unlike the previous works, which are very specific and representative, this one expresses itself through the intermediate of the abstraction and representation. To me, it is balanced, beautiful. If the spectator takes into account that the subject is a teenager, the work perfectly expresses a confusing age, too young to be an adult, yet too old to be child, an age of becoming and identifying, waiting to emerge as a complete self.
I've followed your work for a long while, now, and it's warming to see how your style develops.

This is a sophisticated piece of work that uses the monochromatic nature of red to bring full fruition to the nuances of watercolour. The subtle impression of a right eye is wonderful however maybe the corner of the left could slightly be worked in more. The transparent nature of watercolour helps to give the work movement and depth and the tonal range is established and executed quite well. The use of negative space slowly encroaching upon her crest is overwhelming the focal character and enriches her emotion. Overall this is a refined piece of work that is subtle yet emotive.

"The Rising" is a very interesting concept you have here.
The image was really nicely photographed and it has a very clear showing of all the details in the piece to the point that I can see every drop of ink on the paper. I like how I can see the intensity shifts in the reds.The hair is also really nicely done too I like how you took your time and perfected it. There is also really good use of white pen in the hair. Technique wise - I actually like how the piece isn't perfectly inside the lines you drew for the piece, some of the darker reds are leaking out into lighter reds. I feel as if it is a good touch for this piece. I would really like to see the process you went through while you were making this piece. As for the impact, I am sure it will be liked and shared many times on social media. It will inspire artist to copy and try to get the same appeal. Lastly, this pieces originality will standout from most of your water color pieces seeing how most of them are black and blue. I can't wait to see more pieces like this from you. I hope you elaborate on the idea of monotone pieces soon.

It took me a few minutes to fully understand the form of this piece, and realise where the arms connected to the girl and such, but I think that's just an amazing aspect of this. Big fan of the red pop, grabbed my attention as soon as I saw the thumbnail <3

I really think your work is amazing. It brings a specific color of emotion, that is what I like the most.

Overall, great. 
The hands and face are fantastic. Well done, its beautiful.
Though, that arm pit, torso and to a lesser extent the hair, dont pop out of the page and come alive like the hands and mouth. I think you can create a complete painting that is as spectacular as the lower face.
The splatters and the general the soul of the painting are perfect. 
I hope my comments are welcome and I look forward to your perfection.

Well I'm pretty green to this site...but I'm not green to art.  I know water color to be one of the most challenging paints, and you're handling it like a champ!  This piece makes me sad  (or maybe I'm already sad, and it's just resonating....either way)....I hope your process helps you heal!  We all got shit goin' on.  Hang in there.  Beautiful work, btw.
