Maybe this is what "A painting too real" should have been like or maybe a sequel. Either way I felt like it had to be realized. It became quite dark, but I wanted a contrast between the warm and happy painting and the cold, free, real world. I also wanted the water effect to be as realistic as possible so I built a small container behind an empty frame that I could fill with water so the woman pouring water into the water is actually there doing that. I put a flash in the upper part of the frame to illustrate the sun and and to give a nice warm light to the area the paining would lit up. I will make a blog post about how it was made in a few days. All stock my own.
I've been working myself blind now, I would appreciate your opinion on it! Thanx!
EDIT: Thank you so much for all the kind feedback and the DD! <3 Makes me keep creating!
