My largest recent painting is finally finished. Now I just need to find where to keep this huge creepy thing that keeps watching me whenever I’m about! I called this A0 piece “The Garden Queen”, and it’s my largest watercolor piece to date. It was fun yet quite tiring (runs back to a miniature brush and a teeny notebook).

When working on “The Garden Queen” I just wanted to create a bit detailed watercolor piece and it started with a big-eyed girl with flowers in her hair. Took it from there 🙂 The only advice I could give is to never give up and keep practicing – the progress and the results will follow. ^_^
