Your skill with watercolor is amazing! what kind of water color paints do you use? I am currently using watercolor pencils because it gives me more control to keep the color where I want it...but you are amazing. Your colors are brilliant and bold.

I have to say that now that I am looking at your art I am honored that you spent so much time looking at my art :heart:

Beautiful! I love the random areas of colour, they're absolutely gorgeous... and her skirt... where can I get one! :D I also love the texture in the tree bark, and the stone work.

Very nice painting. I wish I could say more, but I am curious as to what inspired you to do this.

this was inspired partly by my favorite russian song of all time... and partly by the desire to practice painting certain elements :) i try to learn with every painting, so that second part is -always- there :)
