Medea, a luminous painting by `eilidh. The visible brushstrokes are especially lovely and give the piece a gorgeous texture.

Inspired by Pasolini's Medea. I found it a flawed, but otherwise very interesting film, both visually and conceptually. I also felt it offered a good insight into the character of Medea, as a person who had lost their way of understanding the world as they had known it.

Photoshop, Painter, a few hours altogether. Reference used for the hand, kindly shared by *batchix.

I can see the image clearly.It has really made an impact for me to be drawn to it.The colors and shading very well done.Bravo.The technique was formed by circular bases in order to get the right size.Am I to be wrong about that,no?The strokes of the artwork is very fine to see the detail.The upper and lower parts of this peice was free done,right?If so or not,still it gets people wondering.The balance was that of the cool color shades of green had a balance to it.This person seems angry of a loss.You can see emotion in this ones eyes.This is a really wonderful peice.Detail is not to much or too little.
