Sorry I didn't leave her leg in the painting, but once I got to pulling the dress out, it just didn't look right.

Don't give up!

Hi Cindy...

A belated welcome. Glad you found us. We can always use another member who is accomplished at smudge painting. Your words of advice and encouragement are appreciated.

I especially like how you did the border area on this one. It really ads to the effect.

It's always OK to add to an existing thread... no matter how long it's been inactive.

Glad you added your interpretation to this thread. I esp. like the BG effect. Swampy's method really worked here.
