Portrait of a Young Woman
This was the first ever portrait that I did of a person in pointillism. It was from a sepia photograph of Sean's maternal grandmother when she was a young woman. I had some trouble with her hair and so some of it I did as a characterization, like her bangs, and then other parts I feel I got right, like at the nape of her neck. This is when I decided that old people would be easier to draw though I was pleased with this result. Click to enlarge.
