    The use of bright colours is amazing, even with a rich back ground, the subject stands out.

    Amazing work by Sahar!

    The last picture is most beautiful in my opinion as it gives kind of 3D look in the painting

    interesting....

    Indeed, it's got a nostalgia about it, even here the colour spots on the shirt contrast with the lights coming from the ceiling.
