True love, so strong and powerful. Here we have couple sleeping side by side on their throw rug in a park. Their bags and a book partially read, a rest well earn't. The composition has purposefully been created to give the couple unity with the formation heart like in structure. The use of the synthetically produced translucent quinacridone red in the pink throw is bright in effect, yet blends in with the scene being a cool hue.
