You are an astounding artist and this piece signifies your creative flow.
I love the use of the scarlet red cascading for the white and black figures like a giant wave. It truly draws the eye and you did especially well by painting the sky in overcast and the buildings in a marble white fashion. I'm not making any claims here but i feel like the white and black figures remind me of riot police in a city square, and maybe the red represents the blood of revolution, of course, I could be wrong. It's your vision not mine
In other words,
Very well done

This is absolutely Stunning. It is One of the best watercolours I have ever seen. It is so good it fools the viewer into thinking that perhaps this is an oil painting.. Or perhaps this is a pastel drawing ? The mystique of the piece does not go unnoticed , neither Does the overall brilliance of it.
The colors were used wonderfully. The highly concentrated red perfectly contrasts the offset white and beige and Pinks we see here. It draws one in, as well as forces them to observe the entire scenario, and I dare say it does leave the soul disappointed!

I LOVE the use of red and the hints of blue. It goes well for the nation of France, but I LOVE the red especially. It adds to the macabre feel of this image.

I love the red and black used in the image. It looks almost like a riot and I like that about a LOT of your work. You capture... the.... how can I say this?

-moments later-

Okay. You capture what could be the "sound" of the events going on in the picture. VERY awesome art. VERY heartfelt.

Magnifique travail... Je serai bien curieuse de savoir comment vous travaillez vos formes à l'aquarelle !
C'est en tous cas un vrai bonheur, tant visuel que technique et on ressent avec force le plaisir que vous avez eu à dessiner ^^

Bonne continuation !

Let's see ... mmm ... behind the Opera Garnier and to the left is Printemps ... and behind Printemps is FNAC ... and katty-korner from FNAC is Gare St. Lazare ... and behind the Opera Garnier and to the right is Galeries Lafayette ... on & on I walked the streets or Paris, crossed every bridge, sat in every garden...

when I look at art, a lot of times I look into the reflection of the painting...I see many things that IDK if it's my imagination or IF you intend to put these people or figures there, but I do see a very bloody battle where the entire town met with extreme violence; even the buildings are bleeding.   There are skeleton faces or faces of death  in the reflection and a bloody figure of a large man dressed in red (as I see it of course) and he represents the evil in this art...  I love ur art bc it truly tells a story.

Immediately, this makes me feel Crusades. the red draws the eye, but the shadows lead it around.

For future critiques, I provide them when things catch my eye, not when I am asked.
