Shallows by Charlie-Bowater Shallows by Charlie-Bowater
I can't really call myself an artist without ever having painted an Ophelia type painting, right?! Lots of fun to work on :)

I'm having a print sale over on Etsy right now and there's 25% off with the code AUTUMN2015, this print included! 

Done over the course of a couple of days, Cintiq 22HD, PSCC.

Do you only sell prints or is it possible to buy a digital file of this picture? (I'd like to use it for an e-book cover!) Thank you!

I love her pallid skin against those soft green tones. Especially as the green contrasts with her red, echoed by the red and green in her eyes and the goldfish flitting about her. The lighting above and below the water is also excellent. She fades in beautifully.

I'd never watched Hamlet, but now having read up about it on Wikipedia, I think I'm glad! Some great quotes to be sure but a horrible story for poor Ophilia and one that marks very much how women were seen and treated at the time I suppose. :S

Yours is a beautiful work of art, although I would not pitch it at Ophelia necessarily. The woman you've painted looks too alive and watchful! :D But that in fact is a good thing, not a bad thing. When I first thought of it, I thought perhaps a tale of a woman who spent a great deal of time in a great pond, a solitary wild thing, who hid in the lillies when other humans came near. Or a water spirit of some kind, watchful of children that play at the sides of lakes. Your lady is smart, not mad, she is alert, not distracted by misery, she is alive, not forlornly dead. At least... that's what I feel when I see your piece. But that's a magic of it's own, and the magic of all art.

She's more like "is he looking at me?" than "I'm dreamy and oblivious inside a soft, warm, iddle puddle"

No hard feelings, I envy your stuff.

Oh My Gosh! I am a dummy! I am a dummy! I am a dummy! XOXO This is sooo beautiful, and reminds me of so many deeper more intuitive things, like THE FROG PRINCE, Coy Fish & Irish Folklore/Myth/Magic. You've done a grandeur piece, and I LOVE YOUR STYLE, IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE I'M IN THAT EXACT MORE PRECISE MOMENT, seeing/feeling/touching the light which penetrates my heart from the deeply psychic pond of wonder & eternal ethereal bliss.

What a wonderful picture...again. I'm so jealous, and such a huge fan of your work.
Ophelia is always a good idea, and your version is stunning !
Love the colors, and the light on her face. Such a beautiful piece, really !
