    The image really has a sense of gravity: both physical and emotional weight. It’s really nicely done! Keeping those deep darks at the bottom really pulls you in and down, but I think that if you included more contrast and darks into the hand itself then the whole piece would work better. That awesome subtlety of shadows in the bottom, if you took that handling of the watercolor into the hand with shading, this piece would really pop! With both the heavy concept and handling of the paint, this piece really reminds me of Christopher Wynne Nevinson: look up his work, especially “Twentieth Century” — that piece in particular is doing a lot of what you’re working on in this piece! minimal color but a good combination of complementary’s, and a really mysterious and somber environment.

    The purple and yellow are working really well as a warm/cool complementary team! I particularly enjoy the area where the you bring the yellow from the background into the fingers. I would love to see this happen even more, perhaps in the bottom half of the piece! Great work!
