I was quite emotionally and spiritually touched with this piece of beautiful art. The subject matter, colour palette, and overall heavenly glow of this piece are really quite soothing to the soul. The only advice I proffer you is to now take things to the next level of artistic expertise. Start to think about the tonal range of your subject, what the eye should be drawn to (the piece's focal point,) and about reducing the amount of business or 'colour noise' that occurs outside of the piece's focus point. These are just refinements that you can add to your already impressive knowledge of effective artistic principles.
What do you think?

The detail and the technical aspect of the work is amazingly well done (10\10), but it kinda lacks an emotion or idea.. the first time you see it, you get the "wow" effect because of the beauty. after looking at all the beautiful details, you're left with a blank feeling... as if you drew a nice face with impressive technique, but the face has no expression. I've noticed that at your other work too, maybe beside "heartache" and "brave", and I wondered if you are just interested in the technique or you intend to pass a massage. I'd love to know what it means to you.

(sorry for posting it a a regular comment too)

Hi Odelia, thanks for your critique - really thoughtful - In answer I would say my work is highly personal - it includes symbolism which is relevant to me and sometimes this may communicate to the viewer. I have no interest in technique. My work is more driven by spontaneity and exploring the link between drawing and unconscious mark making, it relates to automatic drawing process and is much a method of discovery for me as it is for the viewer. You can find more details about the process of working at my blog and website www.carnegriffiths.com - Cheers and thanks for the critique

As always: amazing texture, amazing details, amazing composition with the simplicity and yet complexity combined. You are one of my favourite artists here on DA because of the precision you put in your work and the amazing talent which you obviously have.

Every time I see you posting a new piece of art it makes me smile and excited. Well done.
