Wow, I just love the colors of this work! The soft purple tones create such a dreamy atmosphere, which fits very well for the sleeping scenery!
First thing that could be changed may be the light from the upper windows. The stained glass windows seem to be a bit too light for the nightly mood. Maybe it would look better, when you use a soft eraser with very low opacity, because although they don't seem to be completely clear, a bit of the dark night shines into the room.
A second thing, that looks a bit irritating is the flower field. It could be blended a bit more. I think some of the flowers should grow a bit more clearly in front of the bed. But all in all I think it's a wonderful lovely little idea with the flower field. They support the dreamy atmosphere very well and everything gets a touch of fantasy! The drappery is one of the small cute details too.

All in all this work is really nice. The watcher gets a feeling of being abducted into a world of dreams and calm sleeping.
I wish you good luck with the contest :hug:

This is simply beautiful. I love the delicacy of the woman's features as she sleeps - with the blossoming flowers in front of her, it's almost like it is her dream becoming reality - whatever thoughts there are that may be playing through her mind.

The soft darkening hues of purple throughout the image are very evocative of a dreaming state - relaxing and gentle.

As to the background - what a perfect backdrop to sweet dreams :heart:

thank you so much, sweetheart!
i'm really happy you like it! i was so unsure submiting this. i know it's not good enough, and after some critics i almost deleted it. probably i'm too hard with myself. but i thought it is a good way of learning more, and critics always make you good if you know how to fface them.
