Nice image, has an advertorial feel to it of days gone by.

Another gem Anna. You must be getting a lot of fun from making this series.
Thought 'Hollywood' was very well made.

It brought a smile, and on a grey Wednesday, in a fluorescently lit office that means a lot.

Happy days Smile

Works really well, and could bring the raincoat with accessories back in fashion. Mike

I keep coming back to this.................it reminds me so much of 'Singing In The Rain' - as done by Morcome and Wise. It is the different/fun aspect

Aww thanks everyone!
This is my favourite one, I had the image in my head and I managed to get it just as I imagined, it's nice when that happens even if it doesn't happen very often Smile

I LOVE that Morcome & Wise sketch, I wish they would put their shows back on.

Thanks Smile
The background was originally turquoise but not as blue as it is in the photo, I re-did the background and added the clouds, it took a lot of painstaking work and I still can't quite remember how I got the clouds to show through the umbrella lol! I'm sure if I did it again it will all come back to me, I just worked it out as I went along, I didn't follow any instructions etc.
So it's just the background that's been created and I actually used PaintShop for that.

PaintShop eh? I use that and my attempts have ended up on the proverbial 'cutting room' floor!

I like this a lot....really can't think why though Wink
