Nothing Gold Can Stay by katat0nik Nothing Gold Can Stay by katat0nik
Medium: Watercolor, water soluble pencil, ink, colored pencil
Size: 2.5" x 3.5"

Where is my mind? D:

This is my crappy submission for :iconliljeska:'s weekly Theme Thursday thingy. The theme is "Nothing Gold Can Stay". I painted a girl losing her sanity...hehe. The gold fishies and the gold area around the girl represent reality/sanity. The black thing on the girl's head is supposed to be headphones. D:

You have a very original style! I really like these. Watercolours are a superior medium IMO, and you handle them very well. also the feeling in these is very warm & fuzzy :D

Thanks so much! I love watercolors :D They used to scare me because it's hard to cover up mistakes while using them, lol but it's definitely one of my favorite mediums now :D

It's beautiful, you made a good choice of colors. The girl's face is very pretty and serene. A beautie in a straitjacket losing her insanity is something I always love.
