Strumming my Pain with his Fingers

It was the lyrics from  'Killing me softly with his song'  that gave me the idea for this painting.

 'Strumming my pain with his fingers, 
singing my life with his words, killing me softly with his song' 
 I love starting with lyrics such as these and just seeing where my imagination takes me. Transparent Watercolour 28 by 17 inches.



  1. I just love this song, it's one of my all time favorites and this painting just captures the atmosphere in it superbly!!!


  2. Dear Ona, This is fantastic! I found an old thread on wetcanvas regarding painting darks in watercolour, can I just ask how you get those dark values while keeping that smooth gradient? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
