a nice and seemingly simple pic Marietta.:0)
but when you study it the clothes are good but what does it for me is the way you've done the angle of her head(pure genius).that one little angle brings this to life for me.:0)
well done again! :0) Marietta Buck

Here I go...I'm doing another first comment jig...I'm starting to get sweaty! *lol* This is a beautiful illustration of the idea of sorrow...I immediately felt the sorrow in this pic...it just speaks to the viewer...her costume is also lovely, particularly the translucent veil. Wonderful pic and my favorite one from you updates so far! *smiles* Marietta Buck
replies: "Green is great, it causes people to feel bad...well that and Napels yellow. Hmm I don know, sorta have a tie going between this one and the fourth one, well for me I mean. Thank you for your comments, and no over dancing because of me. "

Yay! New pics!
.. Where to start.. The drawing just has some sort of aura of sadness and, yes, sorrow.. She looks lonely.. left.. Makes me wanna *sob*.. I love your work, like I once said, and will keep saying.. Marietta Buck
replies: "Thank you much Sevgi. No crying it's ok... Saying I'm happy about a sad illustration sounds wrong but I'll say it anyway because I am very happy that it does come across sad. Thank you."

There is a feeling of sorrow and bleakness in this picture. It's so hard for me to convey these kinds of feelings in my paintings, yet my short stories are all quite sorrowful. Lovely piece of work marietta! Marietta Buck
replies: "I'm glad that I was able to convey that feeling with this picture. It is amazing how we all have our different ways of portraying feelings. Thank you very much Elizabeth."

This is a wonderful drawing that really does evoke feelings of sorrow and loneliness. I like that you have it set in winter with the snow on the ground, it really lends itself to the cold miserable feelings that she must be experiencing. Marietta Buck
replies: "Thank you. I'm glad that the feeling gets across. And winter does add to miserable feelings at time. "

When I first looked at this, I felt a shiver of cold. The sadness of her is very apparent - not only because it's winter and she's looking at a grave, but also because of her coloring. The green makes her stand out more, makes her seem more of a loner. Well, even though it's sad, I still like it. Beautiful shade of green you chose. Marietta Buck
replies: "Thank you. I like using green since most people don't mind the color and it can mean so many things. Thank you again, and glad that you like it!"

Cute idea for a series. Never could remember how the nursery rhyme went exactly myself. But I like the idea and what you did with it. I especially like the way how you did the queen's veil.
