Beautiful Ladies

By gingerdelight    
As you were all so very kind about my Entertainer image yesterday I thought that I would share the series with you, at least the ones I have coloured anyway! Each version was a sheer joy to work on and I hope you like them as much as I do. I have titled each version - I don't really have a favourite but the pose in V1 appeals to me so I have lead with this one!

All these were originally black and white free-to-use images from the internet.

Thanks once again to moiral for the UA on The Entertainer, and to all of you for indulging me in my flights of fancy!


NB: V1 is called "Summer Dreams"

Oh you have had fun with these - for me the dress in v4 gets my vote - the blue is spot on and I like the colouring of the flowers too.SmileSmile

..........and suddenly there are many more - so now I add v7 as another favourite SmileSmile

Why did you upload all together?
Carol they all deserve a separate spot.
Pushed to choose my favourites are V7, V10, v13, V14.
Everybody will choose differently for some unexplainable reason.
Wonderful work.
