One of my favorites of yours, definitely. I bought the book mainly for the cover Smile

Another favourite! That is some amazing details you have created Targete, I specially like the deatils of the leafes! Of course I like the rest of the picture too, you really capture the feeling of an old wood with these magical and mysterious creatures in it. Great work!

a very satisfying experience, this. extremely well-concepted. in my experience, obtaining the subtle lighting such as that used on that figure in the upper right requires real discipline and insight. bravo. the treatment of the environ creates the mood perfectly, and speaks to a larger world these folk inhabit. amusing aside: that furthest figure is lorraine newman formerly of snl right?(i will likely always reference this painting that way, lol)

Thanks Uwe always a treat to see your post. Painting is fun but where I have learned the most is by drawing.

Sometimes the are those moments when I look at a painting, and I start to shiver all over because it is so magic, and this is one of those moments, this piece really has it all. You are a god among artist that gives inspiration to us other artist....truly amazing

Yup – now I am sure, YOU are the one who has all the talent!!! I really can’t tell you how much I love to see your work, thanks god that there are people like you out there who are able to paint pictures that make my heart beat faster – THANKS! – I really need more time for painting otherwise I will never be able to do art like that….

Amazing in every respect. Your painterly handling of this is truly inspiring. It's one of the biggest problems I have in my own stuff - where to put details and where to miss them out, but you've mastered this perfectly.

That is so wonderful! All the people in the painting are so well done, especially the woman in front. You really created a beautiful scene; everything looks so real and magical. Keep up the beautiful work and you will get far! /Sofie
