Ophelia


Art Creations Friday have given us a picture of Ophelia by J W Waterhouse this week. I didn't want to alter this one much as it is so lovely, so I softened the background and put it over a watery background (one of my own photos with colours altered to suit the picture and a faint script added on top).
The quote is one of Ophelia's from Hamlet.

Hi Jackie! Thanks for your comments on my piece and on my post on the pendants.
