I have been watching and looking at your pieces for some time. This particular one does look like its been left out in the rain. From this I suppose there is a fine line as to how much you can apply the drip effect. I would say the fae is too dark and dirty but I think the eyes makes it work especially the left eye as it looks blood shot, overall producing an uneasy feel. The line art itslef is always good, life like even. There could be some more paint splashes maybe but only small rather than large and dominating. What ever you think or any one else dont stop what your doing. Great job though.

I agree with what's been said previously, the face's a bit too dark and you could have used some more mild tones. With that said and knwoing floral arrangements are a big aspect of what you do, I think they could've been more highlighted in this piece as well, not knowing of course if this was your intention or not so I'll be happy to know what you think.

The color palette isn't the best I've seen you use, nevertheless the painting as a whole still manages to look lovely without loosing much charm compared to others in your gallery, nice job as always and keep up the great work my friend.

I think that the dark face is gorgeous and the red around the eyes really just makes the whole picture for me. It's beautiful.♥

Great work, the left eye is a little blurried and pulls the dark as a dominant field unfortunately. Would you have made the painting sharper in the eye and a light edge over the side, you would have it transformed to a powerful dark-to-light composition.

Type of printing normally involving a stone, wax resist etc, but also an automated printing method.
