She hardly ever lets anyone see her, and when no- one is watching she dances to celebrate the beauty of her very own kingdom... Watercolor, march 2001

You've done an absolutely amazing job of portraying a spirit here. I'm immediately sure they would look exactly just so when I see this.

Actually I cheated a bit, it´s not all watercolour, nut there is some colour pencil involved too. If I remember correctly, the base is white watercolour and perhaps a bit of white gouache, and on top of that different shades of green and white colour pencils. There, I´ll hope it helped! "

Oooooh, she's all ethereal and diaphanous and don't you just love words like that? ^.^ excellent work!

Beautiful color! I like the way the figure seems tio be melted with the trees.

Others have said it, but I'll say it too: it's stunning how you've managed to render this dryad so perfectly! She melts in her background, indeed, _becomes_ it! Thank you, thank you sharing this!

Wow. This is just too weird. On www.lotrplaza.com, my username is Forest Spirit. And I just now saw this. Love the picture, and good job at reading my mind. ;-)
