Once again: I love collaborations! This one was done with the talented Louise Lindgren, who coloured this inked lineart piece of mine by means of watercolours, coloured pencils and gouache. I'm charmed by the result, and I'm correspondingly sad that Louise no longer keeps her own Elfwood gallery so that we can all see her brilliant pictures.

Oh my! Honestly, Helle, this is much better than I could’ve done! Now I’m glad that I didn’t finish this piece. Louise’s watercolor touch adds alot to the picture. Awesome work!

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "I’m glad that you like this piece, but I would have loved to see you do a version of it too, you know! Don’t hesitate to send a suggestion if you should feel like doing more collaborations - after all, our styles make a neat combination too! I really enjoy collaborations. Twice the pleasure for half the work, and talents beyond my own added to my pictures: Really, what’s not to like about such a practice!? "

I already loved this picture when it was only B&W, but I must say that Louise did a very good work on it. Congrats to Louise and you 1 . (I especially love the tentacles)

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Thanks! I’m happy with Louise’s work too - she did a very nice job making the tentacles look disturbingly wet and slimy, and yet made the ladies look very elegant. I love collaborations 1 "
