Victorian ladies

One of my favourite things to do in my sketchbook is to draw from old black & white photographs of Victorian ladies. I like to imagine the colour their outfits would have been, and I’ll often add or subtract details to the costumes, hair and faces. Most of these are drawn on Stonehenge paper in ink, pencil crayon and white gouache for accents.

Here are a few recent ones:lady4_web
