Ah the firelight again and the nighttime shadows, great painting! :)

Thank you Donna. It was a bit of fun painting it but I think my dwarves look like bloody garden gnomes. Santa Meets Gnome

My pleasure Chris! I think that if you added too much detail to the dwarves it would have taken away from the effect of the firelight. I have a garden gnome. I'll take a pic of it so you can do a comparison to the ones in your painting ;P

The bit about the detail makes a lot sense. You have a garden gnome? I thought that was more a U.K. thing.;P

Now I definitely need to take a pic of it tomorrow and send you the link. haha.  I have 3 actually, though only 2 are out at the moment. And no, that's not just a U.K. thing. I mean we were formally English so that would make sense.  ;P

Right , bloody poms are every where. ;) Right send me a link Donna.

Haha thanks darling. They do bare a resemblance to dwarves just smaller.
I personally have a problem with a bloke only a few cm.s tall
 running through the woods wearing a red hat. A kite or an eagle
can see colors right.
