From a Vintage Photo

9" x 12" watercolor on paper

I painted this lady from a sepia toned reference photo. Rather than start right in with color, as I usually do, I painted a light grisaille with just the black, much watered down, then added veils of color. I'm thinking about adding some Victorian?Edwardian wallpaper patterning to the background before I call her done.
