This is a deva, a spirit of nature, inspired by the forementioned Narnia books by C.S. Lewis. She is a light, innocent deva of some fragile deciduos tree such as birch or willow. She could dance in the sun, her whole nature is to be an innocent dancer. But if you like her, you can imagine her to be whatever you like :) She could be escaping something, perhaps the trees of her forest are being cut down and she is asking for help and forgiveness (this is the part inspired by Narnia books). Another watercolor painting.

I love the subtle shading in this. The use of a mainly monochromatic scheme works so well here.

I absolutley love your use of colour. I think your pics should all be published as posters. I want them on my wall!

This is my favorite of your whole beautiful collection. I like the apple green color, and the mysterious-like image of the deva. The color isn't too bright- just enough with pleasant blending-- I think you'd make a perfect children's book (8-15 age) illustrator- or a greeting card illustrator! You should start your own line of greeting cards. Good Luck!

Lovely! I like the background especially. Having just started playing with watercolor myself, I know it can be a difficult medium.
