Watercolor “Stranger”, 2019 by Anna Dart

The portrait "Stranger" by Anna Dart depicts a mysterious and intriguing woman being in the street, with someone offering her a cigarette, suggesting a familiar relationship between the two individuals. The subject is elegantly dressed in a coat and the person offering the cigarette is dressed in a suit, emphasizing the sophisticated setting. The woman's lips are full and she has not yet taken a drag from the cigarette, leaving the viewer in suspense. The subject's hair crosses her face, covering one eye and adding a layer of intrigue to her appearance.


The wind is depicted in the background, further emphasizing the movement and action happening in the scene. The watercolor medium creates a sense of abstractness, but the subject's gaze towards the viewer is captivating and communicates something beyond words as it has the ability to reveal truths about the world and the universe. After looking into her eyes, the viewer is no longer a stranger, there is a connection or understanding reached.
