Artwork Description

This is a picture of my friend, Casey, painted as a birthday present. It came, as all my presents tend to do, about eight months late. She forgave me anyways. Casey is quite fond of elves, dryads, nymphly stuff, so I broke out an old drawing of a dryad from a few years before, reworked it, and you see the results. Sort of.

I love this picture. I wished I could draw half as weel as you paint.

This is my favorite of the pieces in your gallery. Wonderfully reminiscent of Arthur Rackham. Very well done watercolor. Thank you for sharing. Smile

Your Dryad (and I guess your friend too) is beautiful!

Nice work! I particularly love the leaves and the clothes...I always have the hardest part maintaining highlights on those with watercolors. This is truly an excellent piece of work, I wish I was your friend and it was my birthday!

I agree - a) this is very nice watercolor work and b) I suck at them too! Wink

I love this! I can't do dull colored watercolors, but they look pretty neat!

Lovely, I've always liked this kind of watercolour style....my own always tend to be more solid... I just cant seem to get the light wash thing down....great work.
