A dreaming moment

Another exploration how to "abstractize" a portrait. Guilty of watercoloring, inking, acrylic-ing and gouaching on 300g NOT Fabriano paper, size is 21 x 30 cm / 8.3 x 11.8 "

This is wonderful. I love the colors used, and although it may appear that there are too many elements going on in the painting, what amazes me is that they worked together perfectly and formed this single piece. You were able to "abstractize" the portrait without sacrificing the focus of the painting, which is the face. It is abstract, yet solid at the same time. It truly captures the essence of a dream - surreal, yet at the same moment, concrete.

I have always admired your style, and I think this particular painting is one of your best works. Good job! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Oh wow, so much detail! I really love how her eyes seem makeup free yet have so much color surrounding them. And I think the way her hands sort of support her head makes her seem like she's looking at something in adoration. Great job!
