Kokeshi by Natalia-Luz

:iconjane-beata:
A critique it is :blowkiss: Picture you've conjured appeals to it's viewer from a thumbnail already, warm coloring invites to a closer look. Next thing that catches my eye is a face profile, shape of the nose and lips, beautifully drawn (I thought it was a girl, too, so easy to judge by long eye lashes and thin neck). What speaks to me is the simplicity of the picture, it gives space to emotion.

There is one little detail I noticed that disturbs my viewing experience, and I'm not certain whether it's purposely done or an accident - position of one of the branches the seems as if it was growing from his mouth. I'd lead it a little lower, by the shoulders, to the other side of the picture, to balance the composition. This is, however, only my opinion (:

Overall, this is another lovely work of yours, I'm happy to see you enjoying watercolor :heart:

Thank you so much for the critique dear. This is special to me because you was the one who made me see how nice is to write critiques, and you're also one of my greatest inspirations here.
He's very feminine, even the original artist has to make it clear in her drawings :XD:
After you said, now I can see that the branch ended a little weird...I never see these things when I'm doing.
Again thank you so much for this and for everything, you're such an awesome person.

The pleasure is mine, I am happy when I see someone takes liking in painting and keeps on creating, it is a wonderful thing. Don't worry about the composition vision, you won't even notice when you start seeing it from a different angle, it will be very soon (:
