|Sweet Rita, no one could be sweeter - Jez|
I think it's time for a girlie picture again. Here's Rita, her hair (but not her face) reminds me of Rita Hayworth, the film actress of my youth - much before your time dear youngsters. Though with all the re-runs of old movies on television she may still be well-known.
I used coloured pencils and then digitally collaged her onto part of a photograph of a huge wooden door that I took in Liverpool a couple of months ago. I thought the rich colours went well together.
I thought I would experiment with a few digital changes, just for fun. I liked the pointillist effect of this one.
This was the only colour change that gave a really different effect, particularly with the fiery background.
And I was pleased with the effect of this filter, where the hair looked a little like knitting.
There are so many wonderful blogs that I visit for this great challenge
and it is so sad that when I type in a long comment
I find I am not able to publish it because I don't
have Twitter, or Google +, etc
so it just gets lost and I can't express my admiration to the artist.
I don't understand why the two Google things are separated with an iron wall!
