Letting go by artisticalshell Letting go by artisticalshell
The most painful thing I've been faced with this year is having to let go...I'm still working on it.

Media: Colored pencils & black pen on 14x17 bristol paper
Time: 25-30 hours

As always comments & interpretations are not only welcomed, but encouraged.

Nice. And probably the nicest ( i hope i wrote it right) thing about it, that this "Letting go" still has a hope. Maybe because of this bright blue colour :)

It's alright Michelle you're not alone ... I'm experiencing the same thing though ... But the painting is so beautiful and so full of life ... It's not really dark or aggressive ... it just shows that you're still beautiful from inside... and this will be even appreciated by someone else you know :) ... :cuddle::peace: ...

fabulous, I was directed here from your WIP...
I love the wings, they look like they're about to eat her!!
This is more of a personal preference, so feel free to disagree, but I think that the wings have such amazing detail and contrast that they overwhelm the figure, which is sort of sad, as the pose is very interesting. Some darker shaddows might help to bring out the figure more.. you have some, but maybe a little more between the elbows and knees?? Like I said, personal preference, you make the call. it really is a very intersting and beautifully executed piece
