Red and green! My favorite complementary colors!

This is a very beautiful painting:heart:
The colors are magical and charmingly kind of translucent... Watercolors at their best! And if you didn't use watercolors for this, well, I'm amazed how you managed to make the colors look like watercolor to me XD
The turquose tones are just so beautiful and go so well with the reddish hair. I'm also happy that you gave her the sort of pale skin and freckles redheads often have! I would actually like her skin even more if there were more freckles, since now they look a little bit unrealistic since they're very, hmm, centered on her shoulder and right above her nose.

The flower details are beautifullll:love: I also love the pearls, and how the flower and pearl theme keeps being repeated all over the picture. Even her eyes have that enchanting blue and green to them:heart:

My only nitpicks are that the woman's eyes are very unsymmetrical as in that I can't tell where she's looking.
Also, the freckles, but I mentioned it already XD
This last one isn't really art-realted, but I think the fullview size is a bit too big! I'd enjoy the picture more if I could see it as a whole at once, but now it fills my computer screen and I have to scroll down to see anything other than her head and shoulders.
