Portraits on a weekend

    Isn't this a little different look from whay you normally do? It is still lovely, of course. :)

  2. Hi Aunt Lou,
    Thanks again for placing a comment. Well, if you mean the tone is different, its because I'm using flat surfaces now instead of velvet as a background. I also mix Franklin Mint with Tonner clothes and accessories. I also retouch the old dolls. When I discover a new technique in repainting I go back -- most of the time laugh. The Barbeque dress here has a semblance of "wind" and if you look at the Plunkett illustrations they try to copy the pose. The ribbon is not too long though. Thank you for placing a comment Aunt Lou! I hope I was able to answer your question. = ) AND most important, have a great weekend!!

  3. LOVE the Wind shot!! I immediately thought of the Plunkett sketch when I saw it.. greta work!!

  4. THANK YOU ALEX!! That's all caps to show you how well I appreciate your opinion on this, and how fast you easily grasped the link to the Plunkett sketch. I've been toying with the idea of re-creating the sketches doll form. I yet have to learn how to capture the full gown because of the blur. But thank you once again! Have a great and wonderful weekend ahead! Email me about your project okay? I emailed you a long one in response. = )
