The wintry background with the fairy girl turnging the pages of a book is very enchanting...

This painting shows such atmosphere it makes me interested in reading those books! Beautiful snow and light from the dusk (or I guess it could be dawn)!

Jag älskar Margit Sandemos böcker och jag såg på en gång när jag tittade i ditt galleri att det var den stämningen över din bild! Hela ditt galleri är fantastiskt!

I came across this about a year ago before I had a DA account, and I'd nearly forgotten it. So now I must favorite it. :D

I love how, despite that it's a winter setting, there's something very warm in the coloring and details. My favorite parts would definitely have to be the sparkles trailing from the book and the back lighting on her hair. :+fav:

It's perfect! She's pretty, its winterAND she has a book! Wow, the girl you painted is like everything i wish to be. Where I live, we have gotten no snow. We got like 2 inches in november of 2004. I'm usually a fan of blood and macrebe, but i think everyone has a weakness for beauty

I've never read about Isfolket myself, but this is absolutely something I could imagine from those books (btw, are they recommended? Are they good?) I absolutely love how you painted the girl, and the rest of it is wonderful too. Really an excellent use of colour. Well done! :)
