God Speed by Edmund Blair Leighton is again about a beautiful, blonde woman who is favoring a knight. In this case the knight is heading off to battle - you can see all of his fellow soldiers up ahead beneath the arch. he pauses for a moment as she ties a favor on his arm. This is to bring him luck in battle, and to remind him of her love. He stares at her while she does this, and her eyes are demurely lowered.
I love the texture of the stone, the freshness of the roses behind her, and the embroidery on her dress. Everything feels real and tangible.
