Christine by the Window by cappie-chan Christine by the Window by cappie-chan
Christine, in all her travelings across Europe, often found herself after a great preformance walking to her window and looking out onto the town at night. When words came to her lips, she sang them. This was often for she had no one now but her song. The songs were often sad, filled with the regret that only one other person could understand. She sang to this person in the darkness of the night, hoping that one evening she would find him waiting for her in the steets below, or perhaps in the doorway. The keeper of her songs never appeared again and Christine grew old with such tunes.

Your mastery of watercolors is impressive - I love the medium, but can't ever seem to get the hang of them. Fabulous anatomy and proportions, especially the hands, and I love how her face isn't just blank and emotionless but full of sadness. What I love the most, though, is Christine's hair. It's so beautiful! I wish 1. I could paint/draw/color hair like that, and 2. I wish I HAD hair like that.

This is wonderful and so sad. You captured her emotions perfectly. And I admire you for using water colors. I love them, but they never seem to want to behave for me.

This is really cute. Watercolors are a bitch, but you seem to have really good control over them! I have not yet managed to conquer them...

All thanks to my buddy, Photoshop. :) Actually, those are the colors, but watercolors dont scan well so I had to up the contrast level of the scanned version.

Thanks though. :D
