Fatima by esyre Fatima by esyre
eighth picture

Do you know the famous book from Paulo Coelho "The Alchemist"? Three and a half years ago I painted twelve pictures to illustrate this fantastic novel. I read it a countless number of times and I still love it!
If you don't know this book already - read it!

Unfortunately the photos of my watercolours are not as nice as the originals - normally the frame is only blue... I hope you enjoy as well...

watercolour
original size: 30 x 40 cm

I love your watercolor technique, to me its one of the hardest mediums.
The Alchemist is seriously at least top 5 best books Ive ever read. Thanks so much for the illustrations
