Hello :) thank you for the faves!!! I love your drawings!!! Especially all your whimsical houses. Fantastic!! :D

Thanks a lot ; Welcome ;)

your works of the fairyland homes in the trees are absolutely gorgeous. I tried to paint a similar home in an old field stump. I call it Donavan's castle. Mine doesn't have the warmth that you have captured but it was still fun, You might call this fan art because I am a fan of your work! Thank you for sharing it here on DA.

Donavins Castel Paint3

Thank you so much John . It touches me that someone is inspired by my works ;) . Your Donovan's Castle is really nice . If i may , you could give it more depth with some atmospheric perspective . You can achieve this by making your greens a little cooler and less saturated in the background and by reducing the contrast between dark and light also . The further you move away , the less contrast you have ... Hope you my english is no too bad :)

I'm glad that I found you. Amazing gallery!

Thank you very much 😊

You are wolcome.
