Ms. October

This was a fun painting I just did that feels very appropriate for this time of year. I collect a lot of old photographs from flea markets and garage sales, and I am always fascinated by the untold stories that these pictures might hold. I don't use them for reference but decided to experiment with it. The pictures are usually black & white and not the best quality, so it was fun to only use it as a loose reference and play around a bit. I didn't plan too much out, just transfered a rough sketch. The product was one creepy portrait....
