Artwork Description

Urgh. First time with the medium. I had lots of fun with the vibrant colours, but I must admit I found it rather frustrating, since I couldn´t do much detail, and doing the water reflections in chalk was way too ambitious a task for me. But I am still rather proud of this anyway.

The colors are amazing! It is a very interesting and exciting work of art. It's one of those pictures I can just sit and stare at.

I love the colors and the shading, and the piece's contrast within itself. Beautiful!

Absolutely gorgeous, Monica. So beautiful and so... dead. I love how wild the hair looks in comparison with the stiffness of the body. Wonderful work, Moni.

Your first time with chalk? Gee whiz, good gods, you are far too much of a genius for your own good. I've only tried using chalk a couple of times myself and it turned out to be a bloody mess both times. The colors here are indeed VERY vibrant, and for your first composition with chalk, this is beautiful and the subject material is absolutely tragic. You even managed to accomplish the vague illusion of water, which is absolutley fantastic. Loff you!

Art at its best.
