Victorian I

Acrylic on Postcard

I found a site that posts a new reference photo every other Wednesday, and then encourages artists to post their interpretations.

I did this as a quick study, just to get a hang of what I might want to do. Tomorrow, I'll post the larger version.  I laugh when I see the type from the postcard coming through my poor gesso prep work. I can't even see it when I'm working, but it shows up so well in photography. Bonus or bane? Hmmmm.

Definitely a bonus! Thought you did it deliberately and like it a lot.
