I like it Carole painted beautiful

Thank you very much Dennis, the collage was a lifesaver to hide the messy foreground :)

Beautiful Carole. Has a lot of depth. Well done.

Love the way he seems to be appearing out of the mist ! The collage adds interest too.

Have never tried collage myself Carole so find this one particularly interesting. A good experiment and I imagine quite satisfying to do for a change. I like it, he actually has a beautiful face! (dark paint is good for hiding 'messy' bits which is why so many of my backgrounds are so dark, you'd loose the mist here though ..!)

Thanks very much Kal, Debs and Louise for your interesting comments ;)

It's lovely Carole, the wall gives it depth and scale.

Thank you Fiona, a new thing for me to try again this collage.

You've done a great job, Carole! I love how you've captured the gentle stillness of the deer.

Thank you very much Seok, you are very encouraging.

Mainly watercolour, col pencil, bit of collage as not pleased with foreground! As you might know, flowers are my thing but this looked so lovely in a magazine. This is my variation of it. Pieces of watercolour paper put on for the wall in front.
