It leaves many questions unanswered, which is not a bad thing at all.

She's lovely! I love the gold part of her dress, and how the water swirls gracefully out of the bowl.

Just that things look different when I don't draw from models.

Of course they do. But that does not make you a bad artist! Think about it, Michelle Lee is amazing, right? And she uses reference systematically.Don't be harsh on yourself, you are very good, and if the use of reference can make your art look better, use it.

My brain doesn't work like hers. I mean I cannot rely on always having reference or what I can draw will be very limited.

I usually know what I want to draw and need to figure it out myself or take my own photos. Stock photos really never fit what I have in mind. Using only parts is a problem because I'll end up with one part more realistic than the other.

This is a different style for you, I love it, she's beautiful! I didn't notice the fin in her hair at first, and I love the way you did the tree, especially the roots.

Thanks :) I don't want to be held back by needing reference for figures all the time so I have to practice more. I think it is the most realistic tree I've painted.

This is really beautiful and serene. The tail and headfins adds an extra touch of magic to the scene even with the water bowl. I like how somewhat subtle is it that she isn't human <3
