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. :)

I'd love to, it's such a good one. I actually wanted to make a picture book of my own of it.

I can note you a part of it every day. :)
