*does first comment dance* It's gorgeous!! It's so soft and light and feathery!! I love the background, the depth, and the boughs of the willows! I agree though, it's more compelling with a character in it, though with the smaller size of the figure the scenery becomes equally important. It's very, very cool. Great job! I can't wait to see more!! Andy J Bradley
replies: "Thx! One of the thoughts i had when i finished this without adding the elf was; i hadn't been careful enough with the details in the leaves of the willows, so adding the character was a good desctraction and leads the eye away from my nasty mistakes in the background. Having said that though, i'm very glad i finally painted a character in colour because now i'm going to try more of the same, and hopefully do a better job next time... : )"

This picture is great, as are all your pictures - well done!! The practicalities of spear fishing may require a surprise element, and would perhaps need an over arm motion to achieve that. After having said that, you have this terrific ability to 'draw me in' to the fantasy. Keep up the good work! Andy J Bradley
replies: "I imagined that like a cat he is waiting perfectly still, ready pounce at the last instant with great speed. If you look at his expression i tried to show he was looking at something further out in the water, and not yet close enough to catch..."
