Daily Deviation

Given 2012-11-17
Horizontal musings in Violet; ethereal watercolor portraiture from =jane-beata. ( Featured by SRaffa )
:iconyorukochikokoro:
OMG so Beautiful!! I really love how the whole thing was done. The eyes, the flowers, the point of view, the style, the color, everything! :D The eyes look the most beautiful. They are so realistic and very well done. This was done in watercolor right? The effect of the water is very well done too. I cannot paint with watercolor lol. I just don't know the techniques to do so. But you did very well.

I still need more words...I love the bluish-purplish theme too. And how the colors on the face aren't all realistic, it adds kind of an effect. Love it! :D

Vision:

The viewer is left feeling refreshed and captivated by her gaze.


Originality:

The focus on one shade and complimentary colors makes this work stand out from previous ones. It draws my attention because of the soft colors and lighter shades of the face.

Technique:

Realism: The attention paid to the shapes of her face and the planes of the composition make her real.

Eyes: There are endless depth to her eyes. I fall into them and want to remain there.

Impact:

I can't look away from her eyes. She represents the emotions, mystique, and beauty represented by the violet.
