The Illuminated World contest entry by JoaRosa The Illuminated World contest entry by JoaRosa
watercolour, A5

What would the world look like if plants were glowing by themselves?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in the USA. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. I'd love to see the effects of their work. I'm sure it will look magical.

Great painting, no doubt why it won the contest. I almost feel that change of lights in the air of this picture. Don't know why, but seems that the nature here has a touch of something Japanese in it. Maybe because of sakura-color flowers, or maybe because they are masters of light effects, too, as I saw this year at Expo. And the girl is painted really nice. The only question is why she has an umbrella, because it's not raining, and I don't think that she wants to protect herself against this magic light. Though, okay, girls with umbrellas are my passion.

Anyways, this work is amazing!
And sorry for a comment a year after this was published, I just accidentally walked through your gallery, and this picture impresses really much.

Thank you. :hug: Your comments are always so detailed, it's a joy to read.

Haha, she's got an umbrella because at the beginning I planned to make the rainy scenery. I remember there were puddles at the sketch when I started painting. In the process the trees and light went more complicated then I thought and in order to keep the composition simple I changed my mind about the rain.

Thank you, too! A painting with so many details surely deserves a detailed comment, which covers at least some of that details.

Thanks, now it's clear how this special art-object appeared on your canvas. :) By the way, great shadow, because umbrella is included there also, of course and it creates even more realistic effect. I think, without rain this painting is even better, it's full of optimism and light feeling, as a sunny and beautiful life road. And also you nevertheless have a special rainy-version with a girl and an umbrella called "Spring rain". ;)

This is so beautiful! :aww:
The idea of walking beneath a canopy of glowing plants is a really cool one. I wonder if we'll ever get to experience this for real. :hug:
