I really like the 'messiness' of the background & the feel of effortlessness in this piece.

You've used lots of differrent shapes, are they symbollic in some way, or just what came out at the time?

I appreciate it! :) I would say as far as the symbols go (which really are my least favorite part of the piece, tbh) it's a little from column a and a little from column b. She's dreaming, and I'm random. :lol:

Thanks for stopping by! :ahoy:

This is impressive work :heart: Amazing mix and colors.
I just started drawing and learning how to draw on my own since 9months ago. So far I tried pencil and digital works, I also bought watercolor pencils and tried it mix with brush and water. But i did not like how it turned out, it was difficult and did not come out to be what I wanted. I have not touched it ever since :P Maybe I did something wrong, but what you have done here is so beautiful. I really love it dear :)

You know, honestly, my first several hands with watercolors incensed me so that I didn't pick them up again for years. Really, I just love the way watercolors look so much, that I couldn't stay away for too long. It's really just a matter of understanding the medium; it's just water, and it'll go as water does. :)

Thank you again for stopping by!! I hope you try watercolors again! :)

Experiments are great—they’re a surefire way to get something fresh and interesting! I love that you’ve limited your palette to two contrasting colours (blue and orange rock, btw), I feel a lot of different colour would make this feel very psychedelic and confusing, which this isn’t. The stars etc. give this a lovely whimsical feel too. Great job!

The blues and reds work surprisingly well together and it amuses me how some of the stars are seemingly held aloft by poles C:

Charming and well done piece

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of the stars and the poles, I don't know why I put them there. I'm glad you like it. :D
