Thank you =] You should try painting glass! It takes some experimentation and practice, but it looks trippy in the end!

Noo, there's no magic! I am sure you can do the same if you just practice and enjoy painting =] For me, I just really like painting glass, shiny objects with reflections.

Haha, yes I painted it!=] I washed color out after painting color on the watercolor paper to get the glassy effects. I spent too long on the glass though and didn't spend enough time on the face, which is not as realistic as I wanted it to be.

I'm amazed at the sheer skill and patience that this work demonstrates! I've been painting with watercolours for years and have never tried something so ambitious as painting transparent glass, but you pull this difficult feat off so well.

Wow that is very impressive! You must be a very patient person because watercolors are very hard to work with. Your painting skill is incredible

This is just beautiful!! I have NO patience with watercolor  , so I wish I knew your secret. This is lovely, and I love your style, it is distinct and seems to be pretty consistent throughout your work. I love that...great job!!

Why thankyou :] This took me about a week, like a few hours every day, and its done in watercolor and I paint a lot faster in watercolor than oil/acrylic.

I think Ive been painting for 3 or 4 years now.

I envy your talent and I love your screen name.

This picture is simply stunning, I have no suggestions to make. How long did this take you? How long have you been painting?
