Everything flows so nicely in this picture, it reminds me of the little tinkling sound you hear in small children's stories, plain, haunting, touching.

thank you ^^
The swirly background were done with water-soluble wax crayons, since it was quite hard for me to get the same blending of colors with watercolors (they're so hard to control XD) The gradient and shading was done first with the crayons with rough areas of individual colors, then I sort of used a watered brush in a swirling motion to blend one area of color with another.
..er...I'm really bad at explaining things..sorry...^^;

Quite the coincidence, I'm reading a book in which one of the characters is Loki, the trickster! I like your work, it's so different, nothing like I've seen before! I hope you'll create a lot of things like this. I'm a fan! :) :shamrock:

it's a really intriguing archetype, the trickster..and it's sort of fun to track down its incarnation in various myths of different countries..Does any folklore in Belgium feature a certain Trickster character? just curious ^^
Thank you for dropping by, glad you enjoyed it :)

Haha, like we have culture over here... :p No, we mostly descend from Germanic tribes, so we belong in that category. But not much is left of that culture in our country. We often belonged to different realms, we were part of the roman empire, we were under the power of the French, the Dutch... We've had a lot of different rulers, so there's not much culture left (unless you call chocolate, beer and fries culture, since those are the things most known about our 'culture' abroad). Though I wish we did have a bit more culture.

The Trickster already paid me a visit a few years ago, perhaps that's why. :)

Absolutely gorgeous.
