I have not posted here for a while... but I am now back with watercolor on yupo which lends more to abstraction...
Size is 20x25

Really well done Magali, especially on Yupo. Is that measurement in centimetres?

Thank you graphicali, I love the challenge of the yupo paper! I apologize, the measurement is 20x13 inches.

Greggo, I very much appreciate your comment, thank you.

Good show!
I would have never imagined that this was water colors!

Welcome back & great to see your work!

I like this a lot, an emotional topic rendered with high impact.

Some nit-picks (no nagging, & ignore at will): I do enjoy the overall composition, but I am struggling with the left side of the painting which, IMHO, cramps the overall space but thus contradicts the open space below. Maybe tone up the blue above a little bit?

Other minor thing I keep stumbling on is the nose of the central figure which has a very strong reflection. I guess that a hint of brown laze would solve this.
