This portrait was painted using a faded sepia photograph from the early 1900's for reference. A gentleman contacted me and told me that a family member had found a photograph of his grandmother in their attic. She had passed away when his father was an infant and his father had never seen a photo of his mother before. The gentleman wished to have a portrait painted in full color. His father recalled having been told his mother had auburn hair and blue eyes. Using the old photo, and recent photos of family members as a reference for hair and eye color, and skintones. The result is this portrait of "Sarah".
