The sisters' noses are the same. Many artists forget the small things. I love it.

The Artist's code is like the magician's code isn't it? Just like a magician, the artist can never give away his/her secrets. I bet many a great artist has taken their secrets with them to the grave. Oh well, I guess an artist does deserve to benefit from the secret techniques that they have spent so many 100s of hours developing. Us begginner artists are just gonna have to learn the hard way, like you guys did.
By the way, fantastic work, I would have tremendous problems even creating this digitally, much less through natural media. Now that I have been experimenting with oils and acrylics, I can appreciate just how remarkable an accomplishment like this truly is.
And I don't hate you for keeping your secrets.

James - I just had to add my voice to all the others and tell you how much I like this painting. You have such control over the always tricky medium of watercolour. Good show !

Guest's picture

Always, when I see, there is a pic from you, I HAVE TO look at it. It´s almost impossible, but it really seems, you are getting better with every painting. Impossible therefore, because, you´ve already done MASTERPICES!!! Looking forward to see more Smile Rita
