Gorgeous! The colours are so soft and romantic. It's like Renaissance and Victorian mixed into one; two totally different eras hundreds of years apart have come together. I love all the freshwater life and that salamander is great! Those type of salamanders always make me laugh because of the "frills" on the side of their heads! :D

This is so lovely. I love the "pet" salamander she's holding, that's some very very nice detail on that. The colors are beautifully done and remind me somewhat of illustrations by Christina Rossetti...Very impressive!
