I just love your work. Those dewy watercolour eyes are brilliant. It reminds me of a similar painting of a girls eyes, nose and mouth, in painted camouflage, that featured 'women at war' in the Imperial war museum, but your work knocks spots off that. Well done It is interesting that all you need on one eye, half a nose and half of the lips, and you can clearly identify the model, from the briefest of paintings. Michael

I never got the hang of watercolor, and as a kid I couldn't figure out why it would be useful. It just didn't seem like a very versatile medium. Silly me.

Nowadays I stumble onto all of this fantastic watercolor work, and mentally kick myself.

I love the half-doneness of portraits like this, and you illustrate the medium and the subject vividly. It's impressive to see people use a medium so well you don't Know what they've used, but there's something more sincere and impressive about using the medium's innate textures and (dare I call them) glitches.
It's an attitude that needs to be learned, I think, the idea that your medium adds a level to the work beyond it's possible photorealism.

At any rate, your command of it is impressive, and I mean that in the purest form of the word.

I wish the little black eyesplatter to the left had been handled a touch differently, either leaving a space between the edge of the page or bleeding more onto the edge. You've got a funny tension going there. On the other hand, there is something captivating about that uncomfortable visual tension. If it was done on purpose, you nailed it. If not, it's something to consider.

Great work, and thanks for putting it up.

I really enjoy looking at this piece. Since it has a lot of white showing it makes me feel like the person might be white, but by taking a deeper look at the phenomenal detail in the eyes it seems to make me unsure who this person really is, like an unsolved mystery. Maybe I am putting too much thought into it, but I do love how rich but simple it is. <3
