Artwork Description

My friend Marcia, posed for and inspired this one..a real Princess!

"She breathed herself like whiskey
into his waiting brain,
All in amaze he turned and asked
the lady of her name,
You know me from your waking dreams
of when you were a boy,
I am the king of Elfland's Daughter"

So soft! All the colors and textures are wonderfully soft, quite fitting for such a beautiful scene.

A living illustration.
I half expect her to move at any moment. This really strikes a chord.

It recalls classic storybook illustrations and to me, seems to describe what could be the progression from fascination with the tales of childhood to the later interests of... more grown up affairs!

You have infused this paper with magick. A wizard in our midst!

This is a wonderful picture where you have used suttle lines and strong pastille colours to bring the picture to life. Exquisite work.

Thank you, Marley! I value your comments, especially when they're in my favour! lol! the lavender effect owes a lot to the fact that I used violet tinged colour catridge paper!

Hi, Bill, this was done on 32"X24" catridge paper, and yeah I've been lagging behind a bit, It's a mixture of this long hot summer and computer break downs that have slowed me down a touch, thanks my friend

Thanks, Tiffany! I had a great time drawing those animals, birds and insects!

Thank you for the lovely words, Kay! As for the comment on your gallery what I meant was, Clamy, cold to the touch, like a Vampire's skin!

It's been too long between posts James! but it's great to see your newest work Smile This seems to be on a bigger scale than your previous work? it must have taken you quite a bit of time? anyway, great job (as ever).
