Wow this is...beautifuk. It makes me feel like I am looking into a private, passionate moment between two people. The contrasting colours, the lines, the softness really gives this painting a beautiful feel to it. Astounding!
Wow, I can't believe I never found this until it showed up in one of the groups I watch. It's gorgeous. I love the detail on the poppies contrasted with the almost stylized way you painted her hair and their bodies. It makes it seem like the world around them is still real, but they've faded out of it.
A really fantastic work of art. I think the way the hair, bodies, and blanket underneath all fold and meld into one another is a great effect. The way the muscles are not overly defined or 'resolved' ends a flow and softness that underscores the 'passion' theme. It is interesting how it gives the impression of being 'completely revealed' when in fact very little, other than a small amount of male hind-end nudity, is actually shown.
