“A Coy Smile” - Digital Oil Painting
I imagine Rumple taking Belle somewhere sunny on their honeymoon, or just a random trip for fun, and at one point, she takes off her sunglasses and gives him this smile.
“Rumple, I think I’m getting a bit too much sun. Shall we go back up?”
And he takes great pleasure in making sure the sun doesn’t come close to touching his wife’s skin for the rest of the weekend as they hole up in their fancy hotel room.
Eventually, he comes to realize what this smile means all on its own, without her hints. It becomes one of his very favorite smiles. Of course.
This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.
