update: EVERYONE who visits my home comments on how gorgeous this print is. EVERYONE. even my father, who is 64. i feel like i'm doing the piece a great injustice... i think it's time i frame it! again, thank you so much for your amazing work!
yes!finally I find an awesome artist who uses opencanvas 1.1 (it's just that everyone's using all these fancy upgrades and stuff like that,and those people think the more fancier the program the better you pictures will look.which is untrue)but anyway...this is a really beautiful picture.I love the coloring and the concept of the picture.everything about it is gorgeous!
I mostly use opencanvas 1.1 because my efforts to get a newer version have... failed. 1.1 has limitations on the canvas size, and only zooms out to 25%, so it's a bit of a pain for high res stuff. Of course this is not your point at all, and I do agree with you, but I think most people work it out eventually. Some people just want to play with fancy toys or put something pretty together with minimal effort, rather than immerse themselves in developing their skills and striving to create something really amazing. Both are valid ways to be of course (and not the only ways to be), and it doesn't help to clarify this whole mess with the blurry definition of art and what makes an artist. HA tangent much?
Thankyou for your comment though, I am glad you enjoy the picture .
The atmosphere of the image is so well done! I can image the character's hair and the curtains moving slowly as the cool breeze enters the room. The birdies on the papers add mysterious and interesting aspects to the piece.
