Hello again, nice work, I like the depth that you show in the ferns. One thing that always gets to me, sorry if I sound like a nitpicker.. your trees don't seem to have much roundness. I could suggest making them lighter in the center... but I see how that can be hard since you put all the detail into them. well.. as always, your work is wonderful, I might withhold placing a bid right away, incase Kimmerwink wants to grab another one at 500. Keep up the good work.

I know what you mean about the trees - when I use that "scale" treatment they tend to look a little flat, which while I like the effect it doesn't look very realistic. Next week I'm going to take my digital camera out and snap some photos of the lovely trees that live around here and get some inspiration from them!
Gorgeous! I love her eyes! =)
Oh Jasmine she's awesome! She is TOO adorable. She looks so lost in those dark scary woods with her little basket. I love the trees! And the expression in her eyes is just priceless!
she looks so sad and lost :( I love the basket!
She is beautiful! This may be a silly question. I was wondering do you draw out the sketch on the canvas first or do you usually just start painting?
I used to sketch on canvas first, with a pencil, but it would tend to "muddy" the paint with graphite. Instead, I now do the sketch in paint - that way (since I use acrylics) I can paint right on top of it.
Sometimes I do a layout sketch on my computer with my graphics tablet before I get my canvas out, so I can flip and rotate things until they look just right =)
I had that same problem with graphite too. That's why I was asking.
I still need to get one of those graphics tablets! One thing at a time. I have to pay off the digital camera first! :)
