Hansel and Gretel

Spring is almost here, to be exact, only 1 month away! Time to melt away the winter glooms and add some color back in our lives!! So here is my spring promo for 2012:

"Hansel and Gretel"
Quote: ""Nibble, nibble, gnaw,

Who is nibbling at my little house?"
Medium: Watercolor on Paper

I remember I've avoided doing Hansel and Gretel the entire time while in school, simply because there is just too much elements/details, which will mean I'll have to spend a lot of time on it. 
Now here I am, a year after graduating, working on a Hansel and Gretel. As much as I dreaded working on it in the past, I actually quite enjoyed painting this piece. It really pushed me to work on my values, color and explore decorative elements.

I hope you'll like it and thanks for dropping by!
Back to work now, until next time :)

The colors are great. I especially like the contrast between the darkness surrounding the woman and the brightness of the children and the outside of the house.

I'm impressed. The detail and design is lovely and the colors beautifully placed. What an accomplishment.

Office 2010 is a great set of useful programs you can use everyday. All in all, download Microsoft Office 2010 is an excellent choice if you are looking to purchase new software, but not a must-buy if you already possess earlier versions.
