I painted this in the early part of the week, I am a little more partial to it then some paintings I do. Then I visited Sharon Tomlinson's Blog and saw the clothing design in her painting print that is a chance to win now. I have explained this to her.
I saw the design on the cover of this old 1883 book by Mrs. Molresworth, Illistrated by Leslie Brooke, it doesn't seem to me the cover illustration is by this artist. I was very much inspired by the cover of this old book. The title of the book is "Mary"and other children's stories.
I have been scanning and printing fabric and suing the designs in the paintings, iat seems a littlae easier tog et just what I want for color.
You have to strain your eyes to see the head gear on the woman on this book cover. So old and faded. The color of the cover altered to get a little better look at the picture. Also one of the photos of my painting has a blurr in the middle, the reason, scanned in two parts. This is the one with the most accurate color.
