I absolutely love this. The piece is titled "forgotten" and believe that the subject is the one who has been forgot. To me I feel the eyes hold something very known. I feel the detail is astonishing, she appears to me to be giving a sort of sideways glance, the eyebrows seem to indicate a sort of power with that knowledge. Tears appear to be spilling, but I feel the feeling is more profound. Painful, but not riving in despair, instead immensely hurt with a sort of, "How dare you?" or "Oh really?" Attitude. To me, these eyes seem to remember. And the tears seem to cover the mouth like a wrap. Perhaps this indicates that the forgotten one will not partake in something, but rather suffer in silence and take the higher road. I love how you made some of the eyelashes appear white, like aged wisdom and strain, or like lightening in a final stand off. The way you get so much emotion in your paintings is truly amazing. I do hope this critique is, if not close, appropriate to what you were trying to convey. Keep up the excellent work!
Oh, another version? Excellent! Version A was top quality but this one is exquisite! There was already a mysterious feeling to the first one, and now with this added blue-ish shroud it looks even better! The piercing look from the eyes already sent a chill; and now with the cold, ghostly colours used, it is chilling beyond measure! The greatest thing about this piece is that questions pops into my head: Who is this? A sad, lonely widow? A spectral assassin? A secretive spy? The questions keep coming, which shows that the mystery of this piece works along with the technique you have used here, which has been executed brilliantly, once again! ALWAYS looking forward to seeing your work, well done!
Absolutley beautiful. This version is more visiually pleasing to me than the first. Although I love the negative space in the first version, I think the blue wash you put over it gives the figure form and shows the viewer that they're not just a floating pair of eyes but an actual face with how your brush strokes curve over. That said both work stand well on their own. Great job!
