Portrait Restoration 2008
finished Jan. 24
update Jan. 23
I wanted to create a satin or silk effect, but realize that I'd choosen the wrong paper for it. Should have used Bristol smooth, instead of Stonehenge. Oh well, this portrait has been a learning experience from the beginning anyway, and I am glad for the mistakes. After all, that's how we learn....right....well, that's my story anyway, and I am sticking to it ;-)
update Jan. 21
the brooch from the original is impossible to identify, so I ended up creating her a new one. I am still debating if I should make the blouse black, or a lighter shade.
update Jan. 19
did a little more refining of the skin tone, and added lashes.
update Jan. 18
a little more adjusting done on her right eye and chin area, and of course more circulism. It's quite tedious, but fun.
