I love the imagery. The object with what looks like cracked enamel: are those people Tristan and Isolde?
Reply
:iconfirestarter1988:
firestarter1988 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
Thank you very much!

Actually the cracked object is a hand painted egg from Bali, depicting a traditional daily life scene. We got it almost 13 years ago and, unfortunately, that is what was left. I do not think I did the original justice, but I am gratified you noticed.

I can't say I've ever seen watercolor like this. Amazing technique. The glass and wood are so life-like. One thing that did throw me off a bit is the angle of the glass. It appears as though it is canted to much to the right when compared to the vase.

Thank You Very Much! I have also noticed that glass thing as well. I know it looks weird, but I made a template of the original reference photo and it is, never the less, in the right place. I think my problem is I put too much blue in the right hand corner of the glass. it makes it look lop sided. Thank you all the same for your commentary though.

This does NOT look like watercolor. I can't even believe it--I thought it was oil or acrylic! The colors are so rich and saturated. And there are so many pleasing beautiful shapes. The glass is perfect. <3
