Illustration Friday: Lady Citrus

I wasn't sure what to do for the theme this week (Citrus), then yesterday while looking at some portrait paintings of the mid 1500- 1600's this idea came to me. The ladies in English fashion (Elizabethan) had these laced and frilled collars which made me think of an orange slice instead. I've a few small things to finish but I'd thought it should be posted since it's already Thursday!
