This is perfect. It's like one more element would have been too much and one less would have been not enough. It's so balanced and has so many little interesting places for the eye to rest. I've never thought of using watercolor on wood. Does it take a lot of layers for the color to really show?
Hot damn! I am so impressed by your ability to use stain! These look so natural and elegant. All the curvy lines are something that you always manage so well, not to mention color combinations and just fucking awesome work
Weird how that happened huh? I think I just got so attached and used to my digital style that I ended up using the same basic process and techniques to do traditional stuff.
One of these days I'd like to do some experimenting with some "looser" stuff instead of the "tightness" that I'm used to... if that makes sense in an artistic way without being distracted by the obvious possible innuendos.
