Vintage Ladies

There is something very inspiring and beautiful, charming and delightful about looking at old vintage portraits, especially from the 1920's  30's. 

I decided to paint these ladies on a new handmade watercolour paper I found on my latest visit to 
The art store. It also has the most beautiful deckled edge. 

I chose an earthy palette, wanting to add to the character of then era.
The colours used are,
Burnt umber, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and a little alizarin crimson.

It was a miserable rainy day today, perfect for painting :)
