The Roses in May by Amelie-the-Fox The Roses in May by Amelie-the-Fox
*watercolours, colour pencils, paper*

The original name of this painting is " An Afternoon dedicated to the poems", but it's too long to be fitted in the "title column" =.+

I don't really love this piece after I've finished it. :unimpressed: Anyway, it has a feeling of summer. ( In fact I love the title more :D )

This is another work related to Italy. When I studied in Assisi, one day I went hiking on my own. ( Hey girl, it's dangerous! ) While I was wandering in the mountain, suddenly I saw a gorgeous gate and beside it wrote " La Villa delle Rose di Maggio " ( The Villa of the roses in May). I couldn't really see the villa behind the gate, but I just pondered in front of the gate and began my reveries...XD

The script in the gentleman's hand writes " La Divina Commedia, Dante Alighieri -- Il Paradiso, Canto I " ( The Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri -- The Paradise, Lyric poem 1 ) since Dante is my favourite poet. The two characters are reading the verses of this poem in a sunny afternoon.

Perhaps when the mid-summer comes, I'll work on another painting related to the sea, but certainly NOT in the love theme. :aww:

Something I found in a storybook, I'd have to note you the entire thing.

Anyway, it involved a hero and his princess, and the picture reminds me of them. :)

this is beautiful. and the way you did the watercolors looks great. i really like the idea, the setting is very peaceful. you did great! :D

for some reason, the man here reminds me of this photo of Gackt (J-rock singer) i saw one time. he had a similar hairstyle and outfit.

Oh yes, Gackt in the pony-tail hairstyle and classical outfits during the Malice Mizer period was absolutely marvellous!!

This painting reminds me very much of a mini movie called Bel Air (the band called Malice Mizer did it). I can't tell exactly why but the painting has this certain "vibe" in it. I must say that this is absolutely beautiful ^-^ Good work!
