Fi,

This is gorgeous and the blotchy background actually looks good with the "shrooms."

Love the soft coral-like colors.  Well drawn.

The 'shrooms look great Fi, love the colourings. I'm afraid I can't discern the blotchy background you speak of but what I see looks jim dandy fine!  ^-^

Here is another commission piece, a very good friend of mine is turning 40 on Saturday and her husband approached me to do a painting for her, he left everything to me which was rather daunting.... I know she loves owls, so with a few clandestine emails, some oddly timed phone calls and some very suspicious behaviour and skulking about on both our parts, we came up with this one. I hope she can forgive me for the sneaky and odd behaviour over the last week or so...  :2funny:


As always comments, crits and suggestions are most welcome

Cheers

Gorgeous Fi !  :heeha:   She is going to love this, and upon viewing it will forgive you both. Hopefully before giving you both a thick ear'ole!  :eek:       :2funny:

Thank you all for your lovely comments, always much appreciated.

As a birthday gift, this was a huge hit with Nat, apparently she burst into tears when she saw it. Tears of joy I might add  :2funny: And at least her husband and I can stop all the subterfuge and sneakery now! 

Cheers

That is cool Fi.  I like the warm and cool tones of the feathers.
