Thanks, Anita for Verineat and Don for the hanging

This is yet one more of my chance photos from the National Gallery through the water feature door. There was a group of Chinese tourists and I think she was the guide, the purple must have been for the tourists to find her easily in the crowd. The warm colors on top come from the last of autumn trees in the park opposite.

Thanks for the comments and votes :)

Quite a beauty, Margaret. I think we could flip the challenge title to art, painting, and others, and the result would stand. Lovely stuff.
