Eros and Psyche Finished Picture

This is the finished illustration for narrative painting of Eros and Psyche.
For those who dont know the story, it is from greek mythology. Eros (or Cupid) had fallen in love with the human girl Psyche. However his mother Aphrodite would never approve, and can see through the eyes of anyone in love. And so he married Psyche, but never allowed her to see who he was, disappearing every day and only accompanying her in their pitch black bedroom. She grew suspicious and curious and one night hid a lamp, waiting until he was asleep to light it and witness her husband was none other than a god. In her amazement, she accidentally tips her lamp, waking him when the hot oil falls upon his chest.
I always thought this was a lovely story, rather beautiful in its mystery and romance.
