the lights and shadows look so real!!!
Truly excellent work here, the detail is beautiful but not overstimulating, the color scheme of the foreground are complimented and framed by the bg, the leaves telling the eyes where to rest and the bark giving a beautiful highlight to the beautiful subject matter.
The innoc3nt and curious face with the warm colors makes me smile, her pose is natural and relaxed, making me feel the same. The professional look of her clothes and the way they fold with her is well done.
Far from my favorite art on this site but it shows the importance of this honorable craft, perhaps one day the art page will get a resurgence and this piece will be overtaken as the most popular on the site.
