Melancholy Princess - Miniature

Well this one will look very poor after the copy of a masterpiece, but I thought I would give doing my own image using what I learned from that one little Waterhouse copy. Oh boy... much more difficult than copying a masterpiece and a good reminder of why I was trying to do more copies in an effort to improve my portraits. :)

This is the same size as the other one: 2.5" x 3.5" and is of my daughter about four years ago. We had gone to the Vermont Renaissance Festival and it was very hot outside. We took a break under some trees and my daughter, dressed as the princess for the fair, looked so sad.



OK back to something else. :)
