Chief Standing Bear. Another 1880s era photo that I’m using as the basis of a portrait painting. This will take a few weeks. I like challenges.
Hopefully I did it justice. On to the next project….TBD
I found a photo taken in the late 1800s of a girl that I presume was wearing a wedding dress and decided to paint a color portrait of it. I made some changes for the chair and provided a background but otherwise retained much of the detail of the photograph.
