Garden Lady

Garden Lady, originally uploaded by sapphire252.

This was a copy of a vintage photo. I gessoed over the top of it, and then altered it - completely changing the look. Lots of fun!

I love this! Was the original photo a woman in the same position and you altered the way she looked and the background? Just curious if you used the original as a departing point. I am interested in your approach. Thanks.

Thanks! The only thing I didn't alter was her facial features, although by going over them with a fine pen, it gave them a completely different look! If you look closely, you can see the shadow of her original hair, which was very long and flowing.

This is a very fun technique - I will definitely try this again.
