What Has Become A Legend Most - Laura-Lynne Eggleston
Fixes applied to yesterdays photo - very rare that I show an unfinished photo, but I
do consider my fixes minimal even if others do not, possibly I have been doing it so
long I just consider it minimal. The coloring a 5 year old could do, and I will be teaching
some online in a short time so looking forward to that. Changed it to the black and white,
I believe I should have left the hair more natural, but my images start to begin to be
more in a style that is highly unnatural. Also for the skin I seem to have not wanted the
pink skin tone, so I changed it to a more sepia or yellowish tone.
Laura-Lynne was introduced to me almost 35 years ago, by an acquaintance who thought
we should meet. So he always brought his acquaintances over. Laura Lynn looks much
the same these days, although her hair is long and she prefers her hair white. I suppose
with her startling blue eyes, it suits the artist in her. On a personal level I have always
considered her a complete gem, no flaws. Love her to death. This picture was part of
a series of commissions that she gave to me. In the future of course I tried to return
the favour, always trying to look out for her great talent also.
