Another wonderful piece. My coworker commented that you used a lot of paint for it being a watercolor tho. But I reckon that's your style, isn't it ? It doesn't bother me much tho do you use a fineliner?

Very pretty and vibrant. You inked the outlines of the unicorn and the trees, right? Just wondering because I'm trying out watercolors for the first time and was curious as to how well ink showed up with this medium.
Thanks. It was sort of a painting experiment, which came out too flat (not enough desaturated colors for distance), but I did sort of like how the unicorn came out. Makes me want to retry something in this style.
This is GORGEOUS! I have no words for how awesome this piece is. The trees are beautiful, I looove silver birch and they're quite fitting here too. The Last Unicorn is one of my favourite books/films (it surprised me how faithful the film is to the book - gorgeous animation too ).
*laughs* That's hilarious. How, pray tell, does one practice to be a unicorn? Did it involve attaching a dish towel to the back of your pants to serve as a tail? I found this most effective when I was being the fox from Fox and the Hound. And I was the fox. I wasn't pretending, mind you. (In my defense, I was also seven.)
No dish towel except on weekends. During the week, one learns to trot to school. I wasn't pretending either - I think I took the old "You can be whatever you want when you grow up" line a bit too seriously. In my defense, I was also around 6 or 7, but I meant business, let me tell you.
