this is amazing. I drew a sketch while in the bath and it looked almost identical to this with the tiles and all, and the angle. I really love this. Amazing.

Heather,

That is amazing.

You've nailed those tiles spot on!

From a distance, the painting looks like a photograph.

Well done!

Favourite added.

i do this ALL the time... it makes me feel like you crept into my bathroom while i was taking a bubble bath (a guilty pleasure of mine), and captured me in the moment.

rather impressed with how you did the water, but the fact that it is black is kind of creepy!

Heck, all the technical stuff is fine, but I don't like this one as much...

I've often been right there, vaguely (or maybe not so) disturbed by the closeness of the perspective (symbolic)--I want to know what 's beyond this, like the girl with the pictures on the floor.

Just an exercise, or just feet in the bathtub?

i love the feelings and moment captured with this...i think its something we can all relate to, a quiet reflective bath, nothing but our mind and the shape the water takes to keep us occupied......

love it :D
