wow - it's really bold and raw at first glance, then the details and textures come across. It really draws the eyes around the page. I love the simple colour scheme too. The eyes are really intense; something I love to see in portrait work. -thanks for sharing it

Gorgeous. This immediately made me think aquarius. The blue obviously made me think of water, but then the more botanical looking details make me think of nature, and lastly the decorative circular parts make me think of portals, or stopwatches. All of it together seems very astrologically divinatory.... But it could just be because I'm an aquarius and it's my birthday today! ;)

Thanks - there is definitely an astrological element!

Why do you use the colours you use in your works? Like what triggers you to use those colours? : ) In this, you you mainly blue, is there a particular reason for that?

Spontaneity I don't even give it thought - sometimes the colours go far outside what I intended but my work is all about trying to make the chaos work for me rather than the other way round
