“The most difficult thing—but an essential one—is to love life,
to love it even while one suffers, because life is all.
life is God, and to love life means to love God.”

Ayla your work is wonderful. That last image, with the evening sky added, is breathtaking!

Those are really neat, Ally, but the one of Maria is simply unbelievably beautiful.Maria herself of course, but the realism of the colorising is so hard to achieve.
I do believe I have a new favorite!

Thank you so much Rodney! Sometimes it just so happens that the quality of the photo (and some luck) allow the colours to come out very nice. :)

Thank you so much Bryndis! I am quite busy and often uninspired, but I definitely hope to continue with colouring! :)

I, too, especially like the picture of Maria.  You've managed to imbue the girls with such naturalism that I feel as though I'm literally watching them, and the surroundings with such stark clarity that I can practically feel and smell the air.

Beautiful as always, Ally!!

Just an small correction : Thats Toria (Princess Victoria of Wales). Thora was the nickname of Princess Helena Victoria of Schleswig Holstein .

I thought it was her when i read the caption and i said "Woaaa! i ve never seen any images of her with Alexandra kids!", lol
