IRL commissioned from :iconcrystali:

Purity is the general meaning of Lily, as most of us know. About this image, first I had the image of brilliant, colorful roses in my mind instead of white lilies (or as you blue *sweat*), but it turned out differently at the end whan I wanted to catch the essence of maiden, a pure woman. So my mind flipped into another choice...haha, but well, I still satisfy with it anyways! (even though they might not look like real lilies...)

Most of the time, blue conveys tragic, regret sense to viewers, but meanwhile I feel sometimes it can be represented as innocent and pure, don't you think so?

About white roses? reason, just feel it would fit on her hair rather than a bunch of lilies. I just my personal opinion though...

I cropped some detail if some of you would like to see it closely. ==>[link]

See you all again! XD

How lovely! You illustrated this so prettily, and the lady looks so elegant with her loosely curled dark hair, stylish navy blue dress, and the enchantingly elegant environment you've created around her. The lighting is delightful too. :nod: Beautiful depiction! :aww:

She's so beautiful. I love that you chose blue, I definitely think blue can represent innocence/purity as well as sadness. Blue's a very universal color in that aspect. ^^
I love her hair and eyes so much.

Pure is exactly the word that came into my mind the moment I saw this-- it's absolutely gorgeous. I love the textured details and the fluid brush strokes. It adds a whole new layer of emotion to the picture.

I think, while the fore-front of the picture is very gentle in color, the colors behind her are darker-- so as to answer your question, I think it shows the reality of balance. There's a darker side to it, I guess?

What beautiful eyes and lips. I love the way that she seems to be enveloped in the lovely blues of the flowers. It's almost like water, just beautiful <3.
