I was so sure I'd posted here

Alexander, marvellous painting. The textures are great, I love the way the canvas reveals itself here and there.

Absolutely Super!

Doesn't get much better than this!.

I'm nuts about good pastels anyway.

Absolutely great.

When I was finished I flattened it and again used hue/sat to bring up the punch. I wanted a slightly overblown/overdone effect in the colorizing, one that would tell the viewer that this old photo had been hand colored in the 1920's. I hope that this posts (with small file formats it is difficult to tell sometimes how it will turn out) the way I intended.

Carefree giggle,
Janet

Just playing around.

Sketch that I half-heartedly colorized a bit.

Nicely done..love the colors and the ragged border.

I tried to make this look like some of the old photos my Grandmother has. Added two separate layers: one to make scratches and one for splotches.
Changed the color and added two different texturizers.
