The painting I have done this weekend is from a photograph. I loved the sepia colour but wanted to keep the contrast of those beautiful blue eyes :0) I would like to do another one of her in her nurses uniform.
This is my Great Gran on her Wedding day.
This is the photograph that I chose to paint.
It's not a perfect likeness I know but I do like the tones I have used and the way the face blends with the back ground. I am thinking of using this in a mixed media piece and doing more with her but I'll have a think about that! :0)
