There are times where your lines are the true art and the color is just beautiful.  I think this time it is the reversed, the colors are the art this time, and they put the viewer right there in the field with the lady.  The light behind her could be a raging fire, or the beautiful light cast from a setting sun, but either way it highlights the lady perfectly and adds to her mystique.

Lovely work Nei, absolutely lovely =)

that was a hard choice, a jump out on a limb thing. its good to push the boundaries of what you can add as a colorist, and ive had it happen many times. it wasnt there in the pencils, and then i get asked to take something back out. not this time tho.

 the script mentioned emerald blades of green......but as you can see in the pencils nothing was drawn for greenery. adding some becomes a must for full effect, and there was a fair amount of that in this project but it left me feeling like i contributed just so much more to the process of making a book.

I see it in so much of your paints worx - probably what I love about what you bring as a colorist (2nd artist).  
Back when I was afraid to do much of my own penciling John Romita Sr. would grab me at the cons when doing portfolio reviews and say these are great ink samples but you are adding and changing so much of the original pencils.
He knew I was only being afraid and lazy as most of us are our own worst enemies. Again great enhancement to this piece Nod

its important on both pencils and colors not to change things too much, especially with inking. if not done right you can make it look like a completely different artist.

This is very pretty! I really like the suggestion of a figure rather than the figure itself. Very tantalizing.
