The first day of Spring

and the weather is just beautiful although the wind is starting to increase.
This is the time of the year we expect the winds.
Rather now than the hot winds in the summer.

Not at all happy with this photo as the colour hasn't come out well at all 
it was even worse when I enhanced it.
So I am sorry but the best I can do.
Over at 52 CCCT it is our choice of sketch and colour.
I choose Sketch #4 and colour combo #16.
Was wondering what image to use and thought my little English choir boy
fitted the bill.
It took several practice goes to get the image faded out in just the right spot
as I didn't want him cut off at the arms.
So several tissues later this is the result. 
Haven't used this technique for some time.


Thanks for dropping in.
