I love the coloring, especially on the castle. The falcon is great, the girl is great (I like the red cape!)and the whole scene is very evocative and picturesque.I would buy this original painting if it were available.
I well remember this one from my collection of book covers, because this was one of my favorites. I loved the coloring, especially the blue of the girl's dress and the manner in which it was painted. And, there's one of those distinctive Pfeiffer trees, which for me are a valuable identification guide to works by Fred, although this particular work is clearly Pfeiffer throughout. The background, figures, color scheme, everything. . .is instantly recognizable as being by Fred's hand. A truly beautiful work, and a very important piece to use for careful and serious study if one is interested in learning to emulate Fred's style...except Scotty, because he's already achieved a superb ability to paint in the same vein as Fred.
