I don’t spend a lot of time looking at (or for) portrait painters, but these watercolors seem like something special.

I love how the edges of the figures seem to drift away. Not all the lines need to be filled in to see the  strength and beauty in the figure.

In fact, leaving a little white space gives the figure room to change, room to grow. A picture is just a snippet of a lifetime, but these portraits leave possibilities open.

This is the work of Australian artist Ray Domnic. You can buy prints of his paintings on Saatchi.

There is not a lot of information about him online, but in looking through his portfolio I was very drawn to his images of women. Their eyes draw me in.

Have a lovely Tuesday,

Sarah from Design Flourishes
