I really like how you made the outside light reflect off the hardwood floor and seem to “bounce” around the room. Well done!
Hi Mark, thank you, I’m glad it worked. That’s a compliment coming from you. Have you drawn anything else recently for me to take a look at? As always I’d love to see more of your illustrations, as there is such depth to them. Glad you liked the shine in Abouna’s office. I wanted to emphasise the grandeur the high ranking officer’s are accustomed to in the military. As in real life, there’s a lot of poverty outside those walls.
Ah, so this is how Alexand came to fall in love with Katherine.
Yes, it’s all Inajda’s doing and then fate and chemistry took over 🙂
You have an amazing ability to reach into your characters’ deepest recesses and draw out their emotions.
Thank you, Vera, that means a lot.
Your drawings are beautiful, this one though is such a difficult subject, but the light is outstanding. I also like the reveal!
Thanks Mary, glad you like it. Yes it was quite difficult to draw, as I’m less practiced with drawing buildings (much prefer people) but it’s exciting to give the characters an environment (although I need more practice) 😀 I love your oil paintings, and wish I could paint colours like you, you’re a fantastic artist, and thank you.
Thank you for your compliment Cheryl, very kind of you!
You’re welcome Mary! 🙂
Oh my! Your illustrations are so very wonderful!
Hi Elena and thank you, likewise to your very realistic and emotional paintings, which are fantastic.
Enticing as always. Thanks for the great stories and characters.
Hi Lee, thank you!
Aha, a missing key. I love it that it’s Alexand’s mum who sets the love story in motion. What a great drawing. It’s so atmospheric and communicates the subtle oddness of your fictional world so succinctly. Beautiful.
Thank you, Richard, yes Inajda’s the catalyst for a lot of things that happen and her involvement in the “Introduction” of Alex to Katherine is one of those secrets I was really dying to let slip in a story!
A wonderful picture, with so much detail. The light is amazing.
Thank you, Guy!
I don’t think Inadja should trust Panak, But then, she appears to have few other options. Gripping storyline..
Thanks Russell, yes Abouna has me thinking that too occasionally!
As always colorful characters and intriguing back stories. Whatever inspires you, keep it close. 😉
Thank you so much!
The suspense is great and thanks!
Thank you! Glad you’re enjoying the story.
I tend to be a happy ending sort of gal. None the less, I am enjoying your voice…talented writer.
