Woman in Red Portrait: Tonner "Return to Tara" Re-interpreted
Thanks to Dale Ohl of Lonestar dolls (check his site out) and to Nikki who enlightened the Scarlett Vinyl Yahoo Group of what to expect. So, before retiring for the night and pardonne moi for retiring so late. It is a weekend after all, I decided to do one more portrait of Tonner's "Return to Tara" doll. She wears the Franklin Mint's very rare blue portrait gown, photoshop-ed to have a new deep red color. If one spent a lot of time waiting for this outfit and finally paying a reasonable price (than what is usually auctioned off in ebay), it pays to explore the possibilities of this gown. The draping of the gown wonderful and drapes in scale. The material is very soft velvet that flows easily with every pose.
Happy collecting. The journey begins in 2010. But for now, good night everyone!
