the grey parts above the phoenix isnt suposed to be there, but they come because the paper is a bit curled, :S

Stunning watercolor control, I would not be able to do that haha.
The background and the figure is clearly visible despite using the same range of colors, the textures are great.
In short, awesome!

And about grey parts, it's not stands out from the rest, but you can avoid spreading the paper well and sticking with masking tape on a hard surface, I hope will be helpful.
Seriously, a great job.

I left 29 letters to let me send this review, so I hope to fill this phrase enough, hahaha.
Well, now I need 10 letters more, its so annoying :(

Another amazing piece! I love the phoenix's pose which gives off a very vibrant feel to the painting.
The background is absolutely stunning and lovely! Very nice use of colors and blending.
The only real problem I have with the painting is the sword. Since the title is "The phoenix's sword", I expected some sort of intricately designed sword. Instead at the center of the painting is a rather simple looking sword. It stands out a lot especially when compared to the rest of the painting.
I also have a problem with the flames at the end of the tail feather. I think the painting would have looked better if you added flames to envelop all the tail feathers or none at all.
Overall amazing work!
