May 2011 Watercolor Challenge - New Life

Here's a 40 year old photo I recently found, a wonderful memory and quite a challenge. Hope you like it. There is a large copy in the RIL here



Have fun!

Doug

It is Ruth's cousin who lived on Ruth's grandparent's farm. Here she is with her grandfather (over 90 and just back from the field).

Oh Doug, What a FABULOUS photo....and can you believe that I'm sorely tempted?? I think I may give it a go if I can get at my paints. What an adorable child and this pic is so adorable.

I love her sweater! It looks handmade. I had one almost like that when I was her age, except mine was pink, knit by my grandma. Beautiful photo.

Re: May 2011 Watercolor Challenge - New Life

Great photo Doug, I have missed the last few months challenges due to moving house.
Looking forward to having a go at this one. The challenge for me is that dark background and bright highlights.

The cardigan is certainly hand knitted, we didn't buy machine made in those days.

I look forward to seeing everyone's versions. She is at the door of the chicken shed btw.
