This is a favourite of mine. I think it's not only because of the colors ( which I love!) but the flow of her hair and dress. Your backgrounds are so intriguing!

Abranda this is absolutely beautiful, I love everything about this, it really captures the feeling of the change of the seasons from blustery winter to warmer, greener spring. Terrific work!

Gorgeous, Abranda! Smile I can see the Stephanie influence, but I think you made it your own. The flow of her hair, the dress and the circle things really work well together. Congrats on the Editor's Pick!

This is really gorgeous. The colours and the texture of the background reminds me of Stephanie Law'a work.
I love how her earrings look like butterfly wings! It really ties her in with the rest of the picture.
Great work!
