This is very good. I love the meaning that is going on the person's face. Even though it took you two hours I think this is a well thought piece and you are truly gifted.

You're very good with watercolors. We're working with them right now in art class, and I can't seem to get the colors from running! The girl in this piece is beautiful. I love this!

Thank you! It's easier than it looks. The eye and mouth actually took the longest just to get the color right, but everything else went really smoothly:)

Wow this painting is really beautiful. I really love all the colors and details. It looks like it would take a person more than 2 hours to paint!

I googled his work, and I admit, I had to force myself to have an open mind at first, but I actually ended up liking a few pieces! And actually, my natural meduim is marker. Most of my pieces on this site are done with marker, I only just recently took up watercolors. :) I'm happy with the results so far:)

I looked her up, wonderful paintings. What a great artist to draw inspiration from. You should also look at some of Manson's art, it's available for public viewing on his website. :) Do you use any other mediums for your art?

I love it, its so beautiful! It needs to be hung in a museum! I would buy it and hang it in my bedroom! The colors mix well and I can't believe it only took you 2 hours! Good work! :)

Thank you!! Watercolors are actually a bit new for me, I'm used to art markers, but I decided to branch out, and I'm glad I did:)

This is breathtaking!! It's beautiful and so emotional... I've never been good with water colors, but you made magic with them. The eyes are definitely my favorite part... so expressive.
