Carnegriff, in my opinion, is one of the best artists on deviantart.
I know I am supposed to write a 'critique' but sometimes a 'critique' is the same as saying how much you admire a person.
EVERY picture of his is delicate, well-balanced!
Every place you look you see how much care is taken although the pictures sometimes feel a little spontaneous.
This is where you are wrong..........he has thought this out and knew exactly what he was doing while painting it.
SIMPLICITY is in itself an art and this artist has it all!
I think EVERY water-colorist should 'watch' his work, like I do.............believe me you will learn something about art.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
87 out of 92 deviants thought this was fair.

Ahh. I get it. As I was looking at her face I saw how much she looked like a young child and as I scrawled down further I noticed she was a grown woman and than I saw the title and I take my hat off to you (well, if I was wearing one at the moment) Lovely work, you're extraordinary.
