More Gouache

This is titled "Hall of the Mountain King", and it is an imaginary scene done in more of the that glurpy gouache. I'm starting to like painting with it more and more. This was an exercise in composition for a class I'm taking, I was supposed to get the viewers eye to move around the picture. Maybe I did and maybe I didn't, but I'll tell you a secret, I'm really really happy with the way this turned out. I hope it shows well on other monitors, the colors are rich but not garish.

I like it too. It takes you beyond.

Four people said "Narnia!" but I'm not sure about that. I think I like it because the elves are implied.
BTW, I liked the Abingdon post about bluebells, which we don't have in this part of the country. Too cold, I think

Thanks, NG!

Its Spring!

I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
