A portrait of my husband’s late Grandmother.
It was difficult to get a good reference photo to use for my portrait of Nanna. I had to zoom in quite a bit on the original photo to get a close up of her face. I’m quite happy with the resemblence so it will be interesting to see what people who also knew her will think.
Below is a close up of the reference photo that I used. It was not a very good copy so provided a bit of a challenge at times. I’m actually struggling a bit at the moment with having the reference photo up because I am seeing too many things that I need to change. The computer screen is showing more detail than my printout did.
