You said bright so that's what I tried to achieve, and to add an air of mystery. I spent longer trying to think of a title than painting it.

Fancied playing with the gouache...

'Guardians'
Gouache
300gsm canvas textured wc paper
A4 size

It is the goddess Flora and her maid guarding the portal to the secret garden.
