I'm beginning to make career out of writing critiques on your work. Still there are worse things to do with my time.

Let me start by saying that I really liked this piece from the moment I saw it because it made me feel happy. Happy that the motif was so light and so very human. A beautiful young woman, eyes closed in quiet inner emotion, at peace with herself. I loved the colour pallet and the use of abstract technique in the hair. The flyaway pieces of hair are exquisite as is the earring. The eyelids with their hint of makeup are very well done. Lips to die for, high arching eyebrows and a pert nose - spring has come and with it thoughts of amour.
What do you think?

I've really fallen in love with this type of artwork.
The position of the women is vibrant and the sharp pen lines against the watercolor makes for a beautiful piece.

Lovely, love the color choices, the earring. I love how you can show so much emotion from someone with only half their face and with their eyes closed.... simply amazing...

Wow! I love the brushwork and it has great line quality! It has a subtle intensity (I don't know if that's possible, they're kind of contradictory words) which I really like!
