The Border of Neverland.
Wendy weighs the future. From a Senior Portrait Session
School of Titian
Researching an idea on how to make this young lady’s Senior Portrait, I found a 1546 painting attributed to the School of Titian. The portrait of Vittoria Farnese of Rome, later the Duches of Urbino, depicts a Roman lady with the golden veil and black dress of nobility. As in the mid 1500’s, the only light used to create this portrait came from a window. A photograph of the painting, currently in the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest, is here.
A Modern Ms. Bennet
Jane Austen completed “Pride and Prejudice” in 1812. Last Sunday, I made this portrait of a modern devotee.
The J.C. Raulston Arboretum served as “Derbyshire”. It was the very first time I could “see”and abandoned what I’d planned.
