Jane-Beata you always amaze me with your water colors. I never knew you could ad so much detail with water colors until I saw your art. You are very talented, the way you can paint eyes is amazing. You could work on the proportions of the eyes though.
They are very beautifully done but each side of the face looks (to me it may not for everyone) like it belongs to two different people.

Your use of colors is wonderful the irises seem to jump off the page. Very good. My personal Favorite is the right eye.

You put a lot of thought, imagination, and effort into your art and i commend that.

Looking forward to more of your art.

Loving the luster in the eyes and on the eyelashes, its very pleasing to see. Loving the strong impact of the eyes, I can sense somehow that they're alive, you know? I'm not sure if its just the amazing mixture of colors or just your amazing talent at work, but I love how they pop in this and leave some sort of impression that makes you think. Its sort of like makes me want to know what is this person thinking? What are they going through?
I think you have a beautiful talent for drawing certain thoughts and emotions and it really shows here. Also, the eyes are really defining I think. Like I don't have to know this person, but I'd know those eyes if I ever saw them. They leave a hidden piece of the person behind somehow. Like I said before, the eyelashes do have this luster that makes me love them. They're really neatly places surrounding the eyes, and also the irises are really a sight to see as well. The color mixture and soft-vs-dark texture of the eyebrows are simply divine. I love the softness of the light pink-ish peach or pale-ish red that soft of creates skin, and the lovely shade of mysterious blue that makes me question if this person is crying.
Overall: it's truly a work of art.

Wonderful picture!!!!! I'm enjoying all your art. The emotions that you portray on canvas are very intense and each is very thought provoking in its own way. You seem to put all of you into each one, which a lot of artists don't necessarily achieve. This is a remarkable talent. Thanks for the llama, because it brought me to your site.

For next water colors, I would suggest something very light hearted and happy, you seem to do a lot of deeper workers. Just a tip though, to widen your horizons.

MY word, this is traditional art and you have made something like this? It is so good, I didn't even know it was possible. The detail of th eyes is unbelievable and giving the face a shape while having the abstract form of the other half, it just left me wondering what else is possible in this world...

It seems that you do not care about smoothering or blendind bonderies of each stroke or splat of paint...

I suppose that your experience taught you that these explicit divisions and clear signs of the paints make the overall artwork more expressive?
Reply
:iconjane-beata:
jane-beata Featured By Owner May 20, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes. Watercolor is a transparent technique and I like the glass effect it often provides when you don't smooth the edges. If I wanted to go for photorealistic, I suppose smoothing would be ideal but this painting is already too realistic for my taste, I like half-abstract works that make you think.

:iconmauriciokanno:
MauricioKanno Featured By Owner May 20, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Great to know explicit watercolour works like yours which show the paints and are truely impacting. I've already received criticism around dA for not blending that much the edges, including by group admins.

But i like that paintings look... just like paintings too. We can take pictures if we wanted photo-realism... :) Nice to learn with the effects you enjoy to convey.

Almost looks like Tom Hiddleston's eyes. Or maybe I just want them to look like his eyes LAWL. Either way, beautifully done!
