Alexandra....

Alexandra was 15 when this photo was taken, she will be 21 at the weekend.
Second to the eldest. I have full permission to send her photos to the forum, sadly the other two said NO!

Looking forward to your art work, whether it will be filter magic or magic paint strokes!!!

Pretty Young Lady! Made it a bit more formal for an oil painting style with different hair-do and background.

Very nice photo!

Re: Alexandra....

Steve;

I like what you've done so far in Painter. Can you give some specifics as far as what brushes you used and your technique? Do you use the quick clone feature? I like the texture and watercolor look.

Thanks
