Incredible effect! This looks like a hand painted painting, very nice colors too.

This has a beautiful painterly feel to it, and I love the bright, cheerful color. Well done, Dave!

Its clearly not just blondes that catch your (artistic) eye, Dave! A lovely, painterly rendition of this leggy brunette in her natural habitat. Beautifully done and such glowing colours to brighten any day!

+1.  In addition, in the larger image his eye looks like he's alive on the image.  Great eye contact.

This is superb, Dave. Lovely painterly effect all around-beautiful soft surrounding colors and great textures in the feathers. If I were to make a tiny suggestion, I might want to see a little less glow vertical around the neck. (A very minor detail-just being super-fussy). Really love this!
