I just wanted to tell you how well you captured that feeling.  I am currently suffering from my Mind.  

I have battled all my life and right now I am not winning. 

Your Picture is exactly how it feels. 

Best of luck in your artistic future.

Well, I used a mixture of yellow, black, and blues. I first wet the paper, then let the colors run. But continued to played with it by adding very light colors (yellow) and  then undertones of green, or dark blues. With a paper towel, you can lift some of it off to give it a blotchy look. It's really all about how you much water you add and how you play with the colors :)

Wow, this is probably one of the coolest watercolor paintings I have ever seen done before. I got a question about how you did it. How exactly did you do those black, yet colorful, splochy areas, like on the top of the picture and under the womans neck?

This is undoubtably my favorite piece you have ever done, even more than the chalk. Very impressive, seriously, this needs to be in the magizine! (:
