Legs, Legs, Legs

This is another painting I did for the WDE from one of Helen's photos which I cropped. The black and white photo was of her mom & relatives long ago dressed in old style bathing costumes. I only did the legs. This is about 3 x 6 done in sepia.

JOAN! This is outstanding! I SWEAR I thought it were a photograph! The sepia works so well!!! BRAVA!

What a composition and crop, Joan. This is so unique, such a fabulous idea. Wish those bathing suits were still in style. I might actually wear one! God knows I wouldn't be caught in a bathing suit these days! LOL

Lin - Thanks. The reference was b&w but just screamed sepia!

Sherry - Thank you. I can't imagine one of those long suits and having it feel wet on my body...ugh!
