I love how graceful and smooth your lines are! Kingfisher's are pretty birds, and it's almost like she's a kingfisher spirit here. Great job! :)

Beautiful colours and textures. And I love the composition.
It's so interesting to see how your style has evolved in very subtle ways since I first saw your work.

So much beauty in one single piece, and the dress is absolutely amazing! And the colours are absolutely perfect :)
Every story with an illustration like this would bring me to read it, or just staring at the painting for ages :love:

This piece is so gorgeous.. I've been silently admiring  this series but this one just grabs me. I love the colour (that blue pigment is just amazing, I can only imagine how lovely it must look in person) and the overall emotion of the piece. And those bones done in watercolour ground are a touch of genius! I could gush more, but I'll just say that I love it!

The kingfisher finery is absolutely stunning! Yes, this cinderella is bound to attract a young emperor or next in line for the throne-prince! :)

I love all of your work, but this one is particularly striking. I think maybe it's because it stands out a bit from your other pieces. The blue is vibrant and beautiful, and the focus on the central figure really makes it very powerful.
