"In Spring" at first glance, one's attention is immediately caught by the multi-coloured leaves and flowers. The intensity of colours, each bright and vibrant, adds a beautifully layered appearance and depth to the overall flow of what is the woman's hair. However, the break in the texture and layering of her hair at the bottom of the pieced disrupted the overal flow. In future, adding just a strand or some minor connection between two or more major visual key points (such as the ones here) would keep the flow moving, yet remain subtle enough to emphazie the specific idea.
The face is so beautifully done, capturing the essence of a woman's face. The lack of colour in the face appears to be a let down, but actually provides a better look at key points on her face, primarily in the eye and mouth. These heighten the overall expression and emotion conveyed in this piece
In Conclusion, this is an outstanind piece of artwork and a perfect opening to spring.
"In spring" is a quite extraordinary example of aquarelle being put to good use. The color scheme is original and not to at all over saturated, which is a normal cliché in resembling paintings. The shapes is a good balance between flowery forms and random paint splatter shapes. When it comes to the autonomy of the face its almost perfect. The only flaw, which sadly draws my attention the most, is the lack of shadow behind the nose, which would help define its shape. As to now the nose could be interpreted as flat. The theme is good and the execution shows great skill in the artist. Overall a true piece of art.
