Heart Spinning Toward Winning

Suddenly, she had a wild thrill such as she had never known; joy, fear, madness, excitement, surrender to arms that were too strong, lips too bruising, fate that moved too fast.

Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell


Surprised, aghast, perplexed, stunned, bemused, amazed—Caroline knew there were no shortage of synonyms to describe the unexpected curve balls pitched at her today. In words, in action, in heart…in men.

Two men, to be precise: Klaus and Tyler. Tyler and Klaus.

Those two names, those two faces, they dizzied her thumping mind as she shuffled back-and-forth between them like a baserunner trapped in a rundown. Quick, un-catchable feet kept her moving, but their open, grasping gloves kept her slipping and skidding. Stuck, stuck, stuck. Where to move? Where to hide? Where to freaking slide?

Ahead or behind, Caroline felt the certainty of a tag against her body. Either way, no matter which base she picked, she’d become the third out of the inning for one of those two men. The final out that spelled victory. She’d become the claimed prize hoisted on his shoulders to show the cheering crowd.

Wouldn’t she? Of course she would. Tug-of-war wasn’t the kind of game any man dared to forfeit.

Much to her astonishment, however, the sound of the umpire’s resounding SAFE suddenly swept across her dusty limbs and filled her ears—for Klaus had dropped his mitt and stepped aside, making room for her head-first, arms-out and open, slide. He’d left his base un-guarded and free for her. It was Caroline’s for the taking; and she took it.

Used 4 brushes and Gradient tone layer with color pic from desert photo, to color the B&W picture. Pretty fast pretty simple. Will be interesting to try out on multiple layers with different gradient for better depth and control.
