Very nice. I love how the background blends in with the face. Makes the piece almost a bit abstract! Great work! Brandi

This is very nice and I agree with Brandi about the background. Very special!

Great effect! Do you draw before putting the splashes of color or you add them after? An interesting technique!

Thanks to all of you for commenting!

aoisart;
sometimes I draw and then add watercolor and sometimes - like in this case - I did watercolor first - it shaped the drawing for me to a certain degree.

I really like the way the face emerges from the washes of color. Thanks for sharing your process...I've been curious how you do your paintings. They're so unique and beautiful:>

I love the way the layering of colour makes it look fluid and dynamic.
