The "Forest Glade" piece looks wonderful in b/w - nothing unfinished but a very own beauty!It's magical with and without colors.
This one looks much darker than the colored version - like night and day. It's hard to imagine for me that this is actually the beginning of the fair colorful picture - and not a variant piece. Very interesting to see in comparism.
Amazing Leafpath! The thick braid lying heavy on her shoulder, airy and delicate feather earrings moving in a breeze (that's how it looks to me!), the carefully worked choker - all those details are only topped by the slightly surprised, concentrated expression. Is this a blush on her cheeks because someone "special" showed up? *wants to believe so* Lovely eyes and tempting lips.
I like how the shadow of her hand is falling on the face.
