Maggie Stevens (1886-1956) - colour request
« on: Monday 16 April 18 11:49 BST (UK) »
This is Maggie born deaf & who sadly never learnt to speak - can this sweet, nervous young lady have her moment in the spotlight by having some colour added to her B&W photo please.

Just  B&W clean up. Anyone want to add colour to this, feel free.

My thanks to Eglejok, who (via PM) has helped me learn and experiment with 'textures' (skin, clothes, background). This is my first try so it's not so great.

Great colours Rami - especially like the blue dress - another lovely one from you for the family album.

Thanks as always
Keith  :)
