That's very beautiful, I like the warm tones of the image and the facial expressions of the elves. Watercolors is a very difficult medium in painting, but you've mastered it!;)

This is one of my absolute favorites of yours James. If I didn't know better, I would have thought this to be some long-lost print of Parrish or Rackham, and I don't say that lightly. The lighting, the detail, the very spirit of this piece is simply entrancing. I hope your client was well pleased with the result - I know I would be!

Oh, a bigger full view size is imperative! *L* Well, okay, maybe not, but there's so much detail that I'd love to be able to see it a bit better.

Original is 11"x17"?? That's not very big for such a picture! I'm impressed you got all that in such a small space. Heck, that's the size I use for pin-ups and I find it constrictive from time to time. Anyway, this is stunning! The work is just spectacular.... amazingly tight detail and control for watercolor. THIS is my fave kind of watercolor work, precise, deliberate yet soft and flowing. Just spectacular. Brilliant work, breathtaking picture!

I love your style, particularly the glow that the faces have. I also really like the tree in the upper right corner, where it fades down into a blue. Very nice.
