Whew--glad to find this again at last!

Thought I'd bookmarked it the first time I saw it, but I musta been distracted, and I've been looking for it ever since.

There is a draw to this piece that's hard to describe. The modesty and composure of her posture and the gentility of her reaction to the bat evokes beauty of character.

This is beautiful. I love the textures and traditional painterly feel you've captured with the brushes you've used. It looks like an unfussy way of painting, with details suggested rather than actually given to you, so my mind can fill in the blanks - if that makes any kind of sense.

I really love the overall tone of it (the black and orange colours as well as the use of shadows with the single lightsource) and the concept is a favourite for me, too. I love microbats (fruitbats specifically, and with the fox-like face on yours, that's what I saw it as straight away) but they don't seem to appear very much in paintings like this; quiet and simple but stunning. Plus, with autumn leaves and lanterns - two more of my favourite things - this just speaks to me on some level.

Amazing work, definitely a favourite :)

I love your sense of color and light,and I also love the brushwork , how do you achieve such a good looking brushwork?

Thanks Alex!

My strategy with brush strokes is to be as economic with them as possible.  I try to think like traditional painters, who would use the largest brushes they could for any detail.  So rather than painting a detail with 5 small strokes, try to achieve it with one large one.   It's not always possible, but is a good goal to aim for.

It is also important to think about edges.  I try to have a good variety of sharp, soft, and lost edges.  To get good at this, I suggest studying the work of John Singer Sargent:  www.art-kingdom.com/upload/367…

Hello and thanks for your response,
I understand better now how to approach this type of painterly look,
Sargent's work is really amazing, for now I find it a bit difficult keeping that "brush economy" through the painting process, because I tend to loose myself into details 
but as always practice makes perfect

Thanks so much for explaining this to me :)
You and your work are a real inspiration!

Can I use this for inspiration for a few chapters story? It's going to be about a witch girl who uses light magic who has a bat familiar. I saw this picture and came up with this story idea.

Thanks I'll post the story on my wattpad account color princess I haven't figured out the plot is which might take awhile I'm horrible at coming up with plots I mostly write fluffy stories with no plot but I want to write short stories that actually have plots. If you have any ideas please let me know but keep them G rated I only write all ages stories. This one can be slightly PG think Harry Potter the first 3 movies and books after that things get too dark inspiration wise since  there is deaths in 4 - 7 (8 for the movies)
