Odette


This is my digital entry for The Three Muses interesting challenge this week (Legs). Wasn't sure what to do until I found a lovely old dance photo (e-vint.com) of a Ballerina. She looked alot like the lead character (Odette) in Swan Lake and the hazy vintage quality to the photo made for a mysterious piece. The background is from scrapbookgraphics, swan (wikimedia), art papers and soft light filters added in Photoshop.

  2. Perfect for this theme Lori. I read your sentence as 'lead role' - ie. lead as in metal! Not quite the thing for a ballerina!! Silly me!
