Hazel, 10" x 14", charcoal and watercolor on paper
The eyes have it. The hazel eyes..........
I've been assembling a reference cache of vintage black and white photos of women from nearly a century ago. They are typically unsmiling and serious. None of the "cheese" smiles we're all so used to flashing these days when we have our picture taken. Capturing one's likeness on film used to be a serious business.
I guess that is why I'm drawn to them.
And want to draw them.
