A woman in a red dress walking alone along an empty street of a city at night.

This image is a matte painting which is is an hand-painted illustration enriched with details given by real photographs, wisely merged and manipulated to create a very realistic looking picture.

This illustration comes from a dream I made.

It took a lot of work to be done because I wanted to be faithful to the dream I had, which was very cinematic and moving. I tend to dream rarely and most of the times I never remember my dreams. This time I dreamt of a wonderful scene and I quickly went write down all about it as soon as I awoke.

It was about my mother - passed away 9 months ago - she was there, in the street, late at night... and we met and held each others.Wonderful dream.

The woman in the red dress is actually my mother and the image comes from a photo I took of her a year ago or so.
