I love your picture of Sleeping Beauty, or Briar Rose. It is so lovely. I might include this in my research report on Sleeping Beauty! (you know, as a picture on the cover) The cat is cute! Maybe there should be a dog, too, because old versions of the story have her with a dog. Beautiful picture though.

This is lovely - the colours are so delicate - and yes, like everyone else I also very much like the cat!

It's not often you see this quality of work these days and it is comparable to artists of old. What an amazing talent you have Ivy.

Interesting observation. By comparision, this piece has more value than most of my earlier work but my style is torn between trying to draw for children, who I feel lean towards a less fussy, light & more colourful style rather than actual realism. These are two contrasting styles and I'm somewhat trapped between both. So yes, wheter it was intentional or not I'm not sure, but its still kinda pretty lookin init? Tongue

sweet image and warm colors. Definately classic fairytale style Smile Nicely done detail. There's not too much value so everything looks somewhat flat, but I don't know if that was intentional or not.

I really like the detail, Ivy. This painting looks like it's straight out of a children's story book. Amazing.
