Interpretation of a Silhouette

The pencil sketch is my interpretation of the unknown young woman who posed for the silhouette on the left. The silhouette was created by an unknown person during the 1800's.
Finished drawings of this silhouette will be on display at the Library Company of Philadelphia this September in support of the current Ephemera Exhibit. More information about the exhibit coming soon!

Ephmera Painting Update

Finally, the painting is at a stage worthy of a detail shot. Unfortunately, the gloss of the oil paint did not cooperate with my camera. Regardless, the glow effect in the painting that I am pursuing is coming along.
