    Here is one of my latest paintings. I usually work in watercolours at the moment, and most of what I draw and paint is from a story I'm working on, set in an alternate Wales. This one is called "Ysbrydnos", which means "Spirit Night" in Welsh.


    Thanks for the pointers on woman/crow transition! Haven't managed to incorporate them all, but most of them.


    Done in Schmincke watercolours on Canson paper, A 3 size.

    Yeah. This I like! Not sure if I would have such a serene look on my face with a crow sitting on my head but that would not be art anyway! Good work Dude.

    Damn. I'd hoped it'd look less like the crow sitting on her head but more like a transformation/magical/dreamy thingie, but... thanks mate. Works fine too. She likes crows.

    Have just had a long look through your Portfolio. Impressive body of work. "Fields of Gold" and "Atop Twn Aderyn" in particular I really like. You have fine subtle touch and your celtic work is beautifully understated.

    Hey, it came out really nice! It does still look like he's perched on her head, but it's a beautiful illustration nonetheless!

    Hey thanks! So I won't have to drag up this thread from way back

    I'm sure some of you followed the progression of this one in the WIP forum. It's finished now - I'm aware of some trouble with lighting; I approached this in a way more realistic way than I usually do, and a reference would have been in order. But in watercolour, I'm rather safe than sorry, especially with things I'm insecure with...

    I actually like the cropped version, which resembles my first approach to this image. The cropped one works better with web resolution, I think, whereas the original looks better with more around it.

    I like them both - I've been a big fan of the wider view since you first drew it, but the closer crop is growing on me.

    Lovely watercolors.

    I'm really digging the new one. I prefer the wide shot, it establishes the space better and doesn't make the figures feel crowded IMO.
