Perfect Harmony by TrollGirl Perfect Harmony by TrollGirl
Another tree! That was really unexpected, wasn't it?

Made this for the James and the Giant Peach contest. I don't like Roald Dahl much but the theme was cool, the place where we escape our troubles. I'm big on escaping. And i usually want to go to a forest and hug a tree. Or be a tree. Whatever. There's even a song about that.

[link]

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony
In perfect harmony

A thousand seasons
They passed him by
So many times, have said goodbye
And when the spirits called out his name
To join forever, forever to stay
A forest spirit he became

Made with watercolors
100 songs challenge - [link]

The colours are a bit off- too yellowish, yes it's a bit blurred, but on the whole I can see that those effects are caused by the media you used to post it digitally.

So the work itself is good.
I love the way you drew your face and off course the trees. ;)
Keep up the cool creativity.

(Oh my, you are probably overwhelmed by comments by now...)

Wow possibly one of the best watercolor pieces I have seen on here. I know it is hard to get detail with water color and this is a highly detailed piece of art. I also love the color scheme.
