I don't know what to say. It's so beautiful and so full of harmony... so full of life and I just can't stop staring at it, because there are so many tiny details to come across when you keep looking.

Your art truly takes one's breath away.

Gosh! So much detail - so much talent.

I absolutely love your colourful style. And the details are genious! It appears to me that you give a lot of your heart blood into your art... Lew.

Well, there's no secret to that. It's just a lot of patience and very small brushes.

OMFG! That is so good! These pics are amazing! How do ya do so much detail? *keeps staring all starry eyed*

Well, the February date is not so much the publisher's fault as mine. There's only so much art I can produce! If not then, we'd have to wait until much later in 2004. I would prefer sooner than later. And yes this is the cover image.

Your consistently turning out remarkable Artwork Steph!...The title is a bit of a mouthful, how about "The way of Faeries" also the publishers timing could have been a bit better to bring in the Xmas market...is this the cover Artwork..?

Regardless my nit picking I know your Book will be a huge success, and a treasured possession by your many fans around the world, you can put me first on your list to purchase it...may the light of Evening Star, shine on you!, and Nenya ever shed your light into this world...

Thanks! This one took about 70 hours, and I must say by the end my patience was starting to string out as well!

Hi Kort! This one is 21x28 inches, but it's probably the most detailed I've done even though it's a usual size for me. And I scan it in directly. As you say, it's the only way to get the color subtleties. I think much of it would be lost if it went through two translations!

Beautiful as always. I really like your color scheme on this one. Must be a large image to capture all that detail.
Do you scan your work in or photograph it? You achieve such good color subtlties...thats why I ask.

Beautiful as always Stephanie. So much detail. Lovely colors.

Guest's picture

You're the magician of watercolors Stephanie! Your pics are always so detailed and the colors so harmonious. I feel like you've got an instinctive sense of colors, but I also know that it requires a lot of work and patience!
good continuation! Nath ( a great admirer Smile
