I didn’t have time to post my first one earlier in the week, so I’m posting both new portraits today. These are both acrylic paint in my Diary of Faces. The first is after a portait by Italian artist Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo (1868-1907). I couldn’t find a title for the original. I’ve gotten lots of wonderful comments on how pretty she is, but I think it is a young boy, LOL. They wore their hair long like this then, didn’t they? And a girl’s from this period would probably be much longer.
The second is after Giovanni Boldini’s (1842 – 1931) portrait of French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. He looks so snooty, I can’t help but smile. He was fun to paint. Don’t forget to visit my new Facebook page, if you’d like to chat or to keep up with my posts. Sharing this with the Paint Party Friday artists.
