The glow on the lanterns is really inspiring for a watercolor I'm thinking about doing.

Also, the picture is purple and I adore the color purple. ^o^

I have no idea how you or anybody else manages to do glows around lamps and stuff, like that. Or cats. Cats are evil to draw.

I usually don't like this much purple in a pic, but the colors in this are lovely-- they're delicate and atmospheric. I love the lights especially. For some reason they remind me of Keith Parkinson's work. :D

Very beautiful colors and textures! I am interested in how you went about making the tree pop with contrast. Did you lift the watercolors or apply white to it? Amazing work!

There's some white paint on some of the thinner branches that were too small to paint around, but not most of it.

I especially adore the little cheeky kitty - he reminds me of the Cheshire Cat ;-)

Didn't even think of putting wings on the cats. But then I suppose they'd have no problem getting the butterflies.
