Laura Siadak says: whooosh! Very pretty, I like the earthy colors for it:) ~ Reply?

     Carole Graham replied to this: Thank you.

Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon says: Nice. Very different than my drawing for the same prompt. It's cool how that works out. I think I'd like this better with the lines delineating the air starting in front of her mouth rather than hanging out of it like string. But I love the way the hair flows with the leaves, like the hair is the wind! (Hmm...maybe that's why I don't want to see the wind in her mouth? I'm imagining getting my hair in my mouth! lol) ~ Reply?

     Carole Graham replied to this: I think you're most probably right about the mouth! Having very long hair myself, I know what you mean about hair in the mouth lol!

Noreen says: Her eyes are so captivating! I love the whispy, breezy feel here. :) ~ Reply?

     Carole Graham replied to this: Thank you.

mikka says: I like the sense of wind here -- it takes a quite a bit of motion in the air to blow long hair (and leaves) around that much. ~ Reply?
