...Look into Paradise... by floriaiglenoir ...Look into Paradise... by floriaiglenoir
 oil painting on Canvas(50cmx60cm)...and she says "look into my paradise...where only peace and harmony is reigning..." that's how the world could be, in imagination.....it would be so fantastic and easy...If we could repeat the story of Adam and Eve...but without temptations,the door of paradise would be closed from inside for  for evil...I am conscious, that I am just a incorrigible dreamer... youtu.be/LCCiwPEdEpg (Ozzy Osbourne "I am just a dreamer" )...

It seems a like a time-consuming and very nice gift. The girl is good-looking, the animals aren’t too shabby either, and the grass faces is a nice touch.

But there is an issue I find with the placement of these good looking elements. It looks more like a collage of separate pieces rather than part of the same frame. If that was your intent, as in separate glimpses, I think some sort of fading or blurring between the various parts might help that idea along.

If the woman and the animals are supposed to share the same frame though it's a whole lot trickier. The biggest issues that keeps them from looking like they share the same plot of land is the slightly variance in angle and the fact that they don’t seem to be sharing the same vanishing point.

Adding a bit more details from the animals surroundings, like the birds branch and the lionesses rock, and perhaps more of the leopards body peeking through the grass could perhaps help.

Also I find the woman’s head just a bit on the big side compared to the rest of her body. She’s got very good skin though ;)
What do you think?

...those are all majestic and powerful animals, there is also a protective wolf at the end (or beginning )of the little bridge...she is in osmosis with all of them, and so are they.She thinks that she is not belonging to this cruel and mad world, she wants to go ,where peace and harmony is reigning...paradise...she is naked and pure,as she was created, no artifices needed.If she is Eve, she ask Adam to come and join her, but this time, the story would be different, because she saw , what  God created, was destroyed and mistreated by humans, for all kind of reasons,so will he join her, and remain in paradise with her...is he smart and sincere enough...
Thank you so much for having had a "look" into her paradise... Thank You by KmyGraphic
Wishing You a glorious day, dearest Ayhan...

I love this piece. The amount of detail is wonderful. The animal work is amazing, and I can't seem to break the gaze of the woman. Curious, is she a real woman, or someone you created?

No need to thank me my friend! Just amazed at the lovely work once again.

If you don't mind, I would like to remain anonymous, but if you note me, I would be more than happy to tell you.

My dear, I have seen a photo of yourself, you are a lovely creature indeed, so please forgive my confusion over your remark. Not sure why you would feel you like to be, or ressemble "her" when you are a vision yourself.

...I respect than You anonymousity,my friend.You will be "Spartan"to me,no problem.It means kind of super-soldier,doesn't it?Reminding me of course of the battle of Thermpoyle with the grand leonidas of Sparte,that was about the 5th century befor J.Christ,if I am right?Well,as from origine greek,that sounds good to me;(lol)
Oh,thank you for You kind remarque:blush:I know,and pretend that I am "beautiful inside"(without pretention),at least,I try my best.Concerning the out-side beauty,well,I never have really liked my appearance,and maybe ,this has a lot to do with my childhood,and the words and jugemens,the fact ,to be "diminuished" to inferiority constantly,by the people,who raised me up.I know ,that " outside-beauty"is ephemeral,anyway;though I always wanted to be "perfect looking",but I never was,to my opinion.So in art,I can "rectify"my dreams..;and i usually always use the mainperson,as "basicly me,but "perfectionned",as my paintings or drawings are mostly "oniric",means that the mainperson is the "dreamer"of the different stories going on arround her,so everything is "possible"in dreams...

Very good! Spartan's were known as super-soldiers, born and bred for battle. I play a game I love where the title of Spartan is given to a group of futuristic soldiers that are taken as children and raised to be the ultimate soldier. My icon is taken from that game. It means "Legendary"

Well, I can understand the damage harsh words can play on your self-esteem. My wife, bless her soul, doesn't think she is attractive one bit, due to a cruel childhood, but she like you is very beautiful.

Hi, Flori! As promised, I comment to your pictures. Of course, I am not as expert as you in ths kind of art, but I will try my best to comment right! :D

Really great painting. Exactly because it's a gift for a beloved friend, you have put all your heart and creativity on it, so the result is really mesmerizing. I especially love the hidden faces in this portrait, as well as the stare and the hair of the girl. :heart:

Keep on like this, dear! :clap:
