I love how you used the dyed strings to give it a more 3-D feel, it's a very nice effect. The girl's hair is very pretty and flowy, I like how you left it white to make it more dramatic. Your shading and anatomy are very nice too!

Beautiful watercoloring and the use of string is really clever. The way you've laid out the string makes it look like the girl has weight to her. :)
Lovely piece.

Beautifully done. The grid/tile looking work adds a nice sense of background apart from the cloudiness, and the masked out birds are just lovely. Nice use of the materials!

Is fun to look at how you play with the planes of a picture, with volume and without it. Like the constrast.

It is nice done...

Oh My God!!! Absolutely fantastic! The composition and the way you use the watercolors are so beautiful. Besides, you have your own style, even if the stuff you use everyone does. It's so difficult to get to that point. I only wish that the scan was more sharp. It looks a little blurry for me. Nonetheless, it's amazing

Yeah, crappy camera. I'm sans a scanner right now since mine broke. I'm hoping to get to one soon so I can offer it as a print in my shop as well.

This is really beautiful and sensible. I love the techniques you used - the dops and the painting running really achieve a dream-like effect and the totally white hair and the doves make the paint look lighter and at the same time, they draw attention to certain parts of the piece. The almost non-shaded dress as well as the strands (is that the right word XD?) in another color also add to the delicateness of the piece.
I think the picture is so full of meaning to try to discribe it just in words
amazing *.*

I feel that this one particular holds a lot of personal meaning for me, so I'm sure it exudes a lot of symbolism for others as well. :)
