Thumbelina



I joined a blog group (Watercolor Wednesdays) and painted this for it. I'm not as happy with the coloring as I would like to be . . . it's too brown. I think I should look at a picture of caves to help me out. Otherwise, I like my characters. Perhaps I'll paint it again some day (or do it black and white).

Hello, so glad to have you as a member of WWB. I just joined as well. I think your piece is wonderful. The brown actually makes the other colors stand out. I think we are so hard on our own work. There is a certain why we want it to come out. I think you did a wonderful job with the piece. There are more Wednesdays ahead. Great work. Your blog is beautiful.
