Visit from the East

I love this 1920's photo of my mother looking to the side as if she is daydreaming while she stands with her older sister, two brothers and three Japanese sailors.  I used Lisa Bebi's technique of first spraying yellow liquid water color on the photo which was printed on regular printing paper from an inkjet printer.  Then overpainted with acrylics and shaded with a graphite pencil and a white pen.
