    True!

    And the older I get the more I realize that that is a very true statement!
    That's gives me encouragement.

    Chantilly is beautiful.

    twolf, The ''Quelques Fleurs'' is my most recent buy, it's in the Netherlands, so it will have to wait until I am back! I tried it once. It was an E-bay buy, Chantilly and Quelques Fleurs in two spray bottles.
    btw, those are the most beautiful sprays ever, very soft misty spray, so totally unlike the spray mechanisms of all my modern perfumes, even the most expensive ones!

    lillybelle, it's really true, on the days when I am at my best it seems as if I do very little work, yet everything pans out, and then suddenly there is this painting and I have to tell myself to stop!
    It's got to do with planning your painting as well, before you start painting you should work out how you are going to start, which tactics you are going to follow...

    Here is the Miss Balmain painting. I have put up more photos of the sketch and earlier stages on my blog.

    I was a bit scared to do the black outline. I would welcome input.

    Fabulous! l agree that stole looks so real, so soft, fluffy & warm, & suitably elegant!
