Almost One by Almerious Almost One by Almerious

(print available in my Society6 store!)

I did this one while experimenting with watercolours (and how they worked with other mediums).
Had some trouble thinking up a name, so I'm sticking with 'Almost One', done from imagination.

This is amazing! The emotions are so big, and the colors do a great job conveying the message. Great job! Llama Emoji-23 (Shyness) [V1]

I recently assisted in preparing a gallery for an exhibition which dealt exclusively with photography and photo manipulation of flowers. Your piece reminds me of one artist in particular. I can't recall his name, sadly... Chester something. He managed to manipulate his photographs in such a way as to create a washed-out, almost ghostly mirror image of the flower (he dealt primarily with orchids, as I recall). I get much the same sense from your work. The colors bleed into one another quite nicely, and evoke a clear image of petals. There is something quite light and ethereal about the work.

I wonder; does the title have anything to do with he seemingly conflicted emotions of the two figures? The one on the right looks quite passionate, while the one on the left looks reserved (almost reluctant).

Thanks so very much. It's a shame you don't recall the name of the artist...it sounds like his artwork is beautiful!

Actually, when I painted this I didn't have the intention of having any conflicting emotions show, I suppose it might appear that way to some people, or may have been accidental!?! I'm not quite so sure myself :D

Ah yes... Chester Ng, I believe his name was. Incredibly talented, but it's extremely hard to find any of his work posted online. The exhibit was titled "The Language of Flowers" in Monterey, CA

Nice work, i like the watercolor effects and how the colors flow similar into each other like the two kissers (maybe to much interpretation)
