I'm in awe of your delicate, detailed grass! How do you ever do that?!

I love the peaceful, resting air of this painting, and you really took advantage of the watercolor medium with that exquisite background!

Thank you very very much! :)

The grass painting technique originated on John Howe'S, which I'm totally in awe of (www.john-howe.com/forum/smf/in….

I think I found my own way around it by now and probably I'm not doing everything the same way he does, his looks much better after all still ;) So that link is a great source for getting a hang of it.

Such beautiful details!  I notice something different each time I look--like the tiny flowers in the blades of grass.

Oh wow! This is gorgeous! It's rather outstanding, but in a subtle sort of way. It took me a good moment to really take it all in and appreciate it. But I adore all the fine details, particularly that shield and the textures in the mans shirt. Very nice.

Iwein kenne ich doch! :) Das ist ein wirklich schönes Bild geworden! Hat der Schild eine besondere Bedeutung mit dem grün-weißen Muster? Ich finde es ganz interessant, dass du den Löwen wie eine Statue im Hintergrund gehalten hast. Mittlerweile hat Iwein echten Kultstatus bei mir erreicht :)

Hast du vor, noch mehr Ritterbilder zu zeichnen? :D

Haha ich wollte dir schon schreiben und dich drauf hinweisen, dass ich endlich zu Iwein gekommen bin, aber deine Seite sah so verweist aus... Ja es kommen auf jeden Fall noch mehr Iwein Bilder. Hab schon einige weitere Skizzen gemacht.
Der Schild hat keine Bedeutung, das war nur das einzige anglo-romanische was ich finden konnte (und selbst da bin ich mir nicht sicher ob es das tatsächlich ist ;))

Gorgeous piece mate. Maybe you could take some snapshots of your work proces, be nice to see. I love the pre-medieval/post-Roman outfitting. Adds to the overal mood of 'legend'.
