This watercolor painting got revamped in photoshop when it was done as the colors were a bit brighter than intended and the hair was a bit sloppy. Regardless it's still one of my favorites. It was recently featured in an art catalogue, my first "gallery" experience so to say. It's available as prints and other items in my shops, linked on my website: www.elionette.com


I'm new to drawing and watercolor. I'm most impressed how I don't see any hard edges, something I struggle with the most.
I like the composition.

Elionette responds:

Thank you! I'm still learning watercolor myself so I understand the struggle of hard edges. What I do is just blend the water onto the page while it dries, this seems to keep any lines from forming, but you have to do it almost immediately after applying color as the color instantly gets soaked into the paper.

Really dark but interesting image. Difficult to read exactly what has happened, why this woman is in the water, apparently bound. Had a nice little moment of going through some scenarios for the image, which I guess is the sign of a good painting :) In terms of execution I like that this started as a traditional piece, especially with watercolor as a medium! Really cool. Just which her right arm had been a bit thinner and that her right breast a bit rounder to match the left one better? Anyhow, great work, had been 5/5 if it hadn't been for the little twerks I mentioned.

Elionette responds:

Hi there! I appreciate your review and I'm so pleased it made you think! As for your critique, most breasts don't match, and one of her arms is further behind her to make it seem as if she's moving. I'm sorry it didn't read, so thank you for your critique, I will work on those things in future pieces! I just wished to clarify in case it makes you see the image in a new way.
