Cry me the Night Sky by SiljaVich Cry me the Night Sky by SiljaVich
We’re drowning ourselves in enormous questions about life, space … even silly things as Beauty.
we have no answers so we just keep on drowning ...

Watercolours and white paint.

Often I find water colour paintings to be diluted and the artist doesn't use the full potential of the medium. Here you have. The blending of colours is like a symphony of brilliance. It's beautiful. I especially like the strong contrast between the stark white of her skin to the dense galaxy of water.
For some reason this woman reminds me of a sort of mother of the galaxy. it's not the traditional mother earth figure that we see all decked out in green and leaves. This person seems like someone so much larger, like the goddess of life and the galaxy. She wears the pain of the worlds brutality in her eyes and the love and embrace in her gentle disposition. I could go on about this forever. There are so many hidden metaphors within this piece and I don't know if that was intended or not.

What I'm trying to say is: This is incredible. Bravo. Never have I given 5 Stars all across the board before.

I really like your art Silja!
Your illustrations are very expressive and somehow delicate. It really hits a weak spot in me :).
May I ask you a question about your technique?
Is the white on her hands and the face still the white of the paper or is it white paint?
I really like what you create with watercolours - very inspiring! All the best to you!

that is the paper underneath <: ! the white of watercolour never really create the same white at the paper does (and I like the white of the paper better than the white of the watercolur)

oh, I like the white of the paper underneath also more then painted white. It just makes it so much harder to paint - one single mistake and your white is gone...
You are so skillfull! Keep up your amazing work!
All the best!

Pretty artsy visual. Aesthetically executed indeed. I like the flourish element of her head, and forming her tears. besides, the galactic visual illustrated below her is so nice, kind of drowning in endless of no where. She looks like pinching herself. Beautiful concept, splendid execution I would say.
