An angel and her horse

An Angel with a Horse
This image came from an old and tattered postcard. The woman, dressed as an angel had feathery wings that were hand tinted and overdrawn with oranges and reds. It's hard to tell with a postcard this old how much of the coloration was original hand tinting and how much was added over the decades. I gave our angel and her horse a more exotic and dreamy background to match her wings.

    1. Thanks! The early Victorian postcards don’t have any information about the person photographed. I took the image and then made a digital collage using textures and other images. This particular image looks like it was hand tinted originally and then someone else drew on it later. It’s kind of cool to think about the different layers of artistic expression!
