Young Lady by a Fence

I found this at SXC

http://www.sxc.hu/photo/816767

I think this is a great picture and will very do well here, after all look who's reading this.

You have virtually blank canvas to one side, so let your imagination free.

link to a better quality version of my effort:-

Enjoy

Re: Young Lady by a Fence

Was going to do a dreamland with Fairies and Unicorns, clouds and sparkly thingies in the fence area.. BUT wanted to see what kind of dream-scape or use of that area the others came up with (Palms, Amica, Swampy, Lonnie and all the others).. Besides it was to much of an undertaking for me!
I have to keep it simple!

Re: Young Lady by a Fence

Nice work all.

@ OB, I am not so a fairy, unicorn phantasy type :-) I didn't watch the Lord Of Rings or Harry Potter even though I had them around...Maybe I have a play later, but no fairies to expect from me :-)

you may be right - you've made her look older, err in her teens.

I quite like that though.
