the pond (IF "dip")

I know I'm really late with my post for this weeks IF. Anyway here it finally comes. I decided to go again with watercolours 'cause I have the feeling of being in need of far more practice. Hope you guys enjoy it.

  4. Good job! Watercolors are tough because they're unforgiving. More power to you! I especially like the water (the flowers floating on top and the fish in it). Nice work!

  10. Okay, I'm going to try to not say gorgeous, having overused it before. But it is, you know. Simply gorgeous! Ack! See what your art does to me? The reflection and the colors are exquisite. This feels like a classic Disney animation. :)

  14. Hi there,
    I know the benefit of receiving constructive criticism, so I hope you don't mind me giving you some.
    Your work has lovely backgrounds, and you manage to install a feeling of atmosphere into each of them. I think they could be improved through composition. For example, in this picture, the girl should stand out more than the tree. This would help to "tell the story" better.
    I have a really good book on composition, I will try and scan some pages onto my blog.

    The other thing that would help to make the image more powerful would be to work your shadows more.
    Hope this helps.
