Beautiful in an almost haunting, mysterious way. The colours and the way you've let them bleed into each other make it really interesting. I like the concept behind it too - its something I can relate to. I'm adding this to my faves for sure :)

I just wanted to let you know that I really like this. I like the colors a lot. It is very unusual and appealing to the eye.

Ironicly, the farther away you observe this from the better it looks

It's true, we're all a little insane.

definitely your best watercolor and top 5 overall. this one is amazing and neimyne is absolutely right. you are one very talented person. your description of this i just realized describes me. i always love to observe but it feels like i don't do much on my own.

I very much like how this face has no mouth, and how the colors seem to be reflected off of other lights, rather than emanating from its own skin. It really does portray some of the important aspects of an observer.
