Forbidden Desire by autumnsmuse Forbidden Desire by autumnsmuse
I painted this for the pansy exhibit at EBSQ. I wanted something that gave a nod to all the endless rainbows of colors pansies come in, and the symbolism of a pansy and a honeyflower in a bouquet together (I am thinking of our forbidden love). I had a lot of fun painting the bubbles and rainbow fish and just kind of going wild with all the things I really like (COLORS!).

Painted in Photoshop CS5.

How has a mermaid-lover like me avoided discovering your amazing art this long? GORGEOUS work! Your skill is mind blowing, you probably hear that all the time. But man, I love the iridescent colors on this!

Very pretty and colourful. I use Photoshop CS6 though my paintings aren't as good as yours.

Love the colors in this! She's modest with her hair, the lines are gorgeous, and the colors....oh my, the colors! I love it. Happy, joyful, pretty. And not creepy like some I've seen, or over-sensualized. Love it!
