Perhaps you noticed that in every feature you were in, i introduced this piece as well, and now it's time to let you know why.
It's beyond the technique you used - it lays in the emotion it carries. Is there anyone that can truly deny experiencing frustration at least once in their life? At least i can't, it's one of the most basic human feelings.
The use of colours is great, the attention is drawn exactly where it's needed. I love the model's pose, it's realistic and it inspires vulnerability; the closed eyes express the need to disconnect from that tense moment and gather the strenght to face the situation that caused the frustration in the first place.
I know i never actually told you what i felt about your works, but be sure that all of them awake feelings inside that i fear i may not express properly. Anyways, i hope you understood what i wanted to say. Have a great evening, Jana
Thank you very much for this insight, it enriches me to see how you perceive this work of mine. I think we are on the same page here, this emotion greatly influencing our lives. Have a great day yourself, please don't be frustrated, not today
I don't know how I feel about discussing this in my work comment window but in general I have no problem answering, I faved my own deviation with my alternate account. Wasn't aware it's against policies and now I am - that's the story (:
DA is rather childish on that part. I mean, it is just easy to browse through your own work that way. But neither will they chase artripping/thievery that strict. If you report a bug to help THEM, you just get an automatic reply; they do nothing with your comments until it is a mass problem. They expect you read the grand manual policy entirely and remember E-VE-RY single word. If you don't agree we'll smash you with the giant lawsuit-foot until you're broke and have no right to complain.
BTW, this is "freedom of opinion", not an accusation, because this realms on FB, Twitter and all that bull too, or many of the grand-financial companies for that matter.
I understand that system is not perfect and neither am I. I also think that if my deviation wasn't on frontpage that day, nobody would care as much. I am positive on one thing, the suspension has harmed me much more than I could harm anyone by my mistake and it's the reason why I am sick of net and in no mood to participate in community work anymore.
Call it positive, but I don't think so...believe me I talk out of experience. One thing to remember is that you post your works for yourself and that others may view it, is just a privilege for them. But for you it is important. I post my work, because if my commissions are out the door, or a case of fire or something I still have something to grasp. I post because I want my own little artistic myspace and just hopefully someone likes it...eventually, it is about talking art, sharing art and to do art.
The frustration often involves a sense of powerlessness. I find that this is very well expressed by inactivity of these "big" hands . To overcome the frustration , we often need to fall back on ourselves.It is very well rendered by these eyes hidden and closed. I find that you have very well transmitted this emotion in this painting. Great Work, Jane!!!
