I want to thank michelle at following the master blog...(http://followingthemasters.blogspot.com/). I decided to join in on this challenge. For my portrait I picked one of my favorite artists. I found a self portrait of Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926)
I started with her hat and worked down.
This second painting is from a photo of her when she was older. I used a very limited palette and used a small squirrel mop with no drawing.
I really enjoyed doing both of these since I really love all her work.
