Do you think that Avalon and Hy Brasil could be related in some way?

I have no idea. I'd not really heard of Hy Brasil before, but anything's possible

It's a supposedly mythical island located off the Western Coast of Ireland

This perfectly fits how I always envisioned Morgan. I love the addition of the apples, the raven, and Camelot in the background. it all fits perfectly! :)

This is an absolutely beautiful painting of her. I like that she's wearing a red gown, it makes her stand out, not to mention is different from her usual dark garments in art.

... and some, a witch :)
Very good artwork: black and red always good combination. Her jewelry is very detailed and i love the aplle-ornament above her. Oh, and thanks you gave her normal human ears, and not those sharp long elf-ears. When she had the same mother as Arthur, who was mortal, she should be mortal too ;)
I like this

...and a witch for others.
In your drawing you combine very well all this concepts. Powerful like a priestes, ethereal like a fae... and even frightening like a witch must be.

To create - fae. To sustain - priestess. To destroy - witch. The 3 faces of the goddess, so many times misundertood.

I read I Am Mordred, and since then I've thought he was misportrayed in the Arthurian legends. It's a really good book. ^^ If you'd like another good Arthurian tale, you might try The Mists of Avalon.

I like the cold callous expression on her. The watercolors are well-done as well, and I think you've captured her personality nicely.

I really like this as an image of Morgan le Fay (you know how it is, sometimes, you find yourself thinking, 'but she doesn't /look/ like that!') - she looks just right. Great expression, pose, background, everything - great work all round really!
