As Lan said very nicely done Ray, labour of love put's it mildly, great attention to detail. Thanks for sharing. I actually did this one before Ray, never liked it so had another go, this time with muted colour's.

Re: Empress Alexandra......

Nice work Patsy...Lovely tones and colours...
I deliberately changed tones from Klimbim's version just for my own benefit.....this really took some doing because of all the detail in the dress as I am sure you found as well...
I wonder if there is an easy way to select all the detail?
Any thoughts Patsy or is it just a labour of love over many hours?
Best wishes Ray

I do know Olga (Klimbim) spent many hours on a lot of the Russian History one's, so yes it is a labour of love. Most if not all of the Colour's used for that particular era centered around Red's, Blue's, and Whites, ironically the colour of the national flag. We tend to forget she has been doing this type of work for many years, to me she has set a standard all we have to do is try to catch up LoL.

Re: Empress Alexandra......

Thank you Patsy...
I did try various methods of selection but to no avail....
Olga's work is stunning and she certainly sets the standard....
She must have incredible patience because I found this one very time consuming and mentally demanding.....I thought I would never reach the end of the detail etc.....as must you have Patsy
Many thanks as always...take care and keep safe
Best wishes Ray
