BRAVO!
C'est vraiment très impressionnant de voir que grâce à ta composition, un si beau paysage n'a pas englouti le sujet. Je pense que ce qui fait le succès de cette toile, c'est le très gros contraste entre les zones éclairée et le zone d'ombre.

Le tout est très réaliste, mais je vois bien que vous n'avez pas tenté de "faire de la photo avec les pinceaux" ce qui est à mon avis parfois dérangeant.

Merci de nous avoir montré cette peinture.

Upon request here's the english version!

Bravo!
It is very impressive to see that thanks to your composition, such a beautifull landscape has not overpowered your subject. I think what makes this painting work is the great contrast between light areas and the shadowed areas.

It is very realistic but I can see you have not tried to "make a photograph with your paintbrushes" which is, to my taste, sometimes disturbing.

Thanks for showing us your painting.

Sorry the syntax is so close to the french one but I'm in a hurry!
