This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Cupid and Psyche by Louis-Jean-Francois Lagrenee shows the beautiful princess Psyche being entertained by the affections of Cupid who was sent to make Psyche fall in love with a monster, but instead he, Cupid himself, falls in love with Psyche due to her irresistible beauty. I was captivated by the tenderness the couple exudes for each other and the artist's use of the color blue. There are striking shades of blue on Cupid's wings and the robe in the background. The color blue really stands out and is used by the artist to highlight key areas. This is another very romantic scene, so if you are a romantic, this would be the perfect pattern to stitch. Love conquers all! No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
