  • She does look rather stern and a bit frightened. I put this down to the formal photography then, with the flash, and dressed in her best black satin dress. Circa 1910 I think.

  • Just what i was thinking, Maureen, she looks stern.

  • Coming along beautifully, she has a great demeanour about her, Victorian pose and dress all have a period feel to it. Might look good with a touch of sepia.

  • I wonder why they never smiled for a photo them days, but it's really good 😊

  • I've got a host of stern relatives as well maybe they were all born like that. It's a super portrait Marjorie. I think you should join A G and have a go at Sky portrait artist of the year...wow that would be a show with two of you in it.

  • You've got the. Era of this person so well described. The background works really well and I love the light on the dress fabric

  • I’ve got a few photos like that, I think they had to sit perfectly still waiting for the camera bulb to flash....frozen in time.
    A lovely portrait, Marjorie. Beautifully done so far.

  • It’s looking terrific Marjorie, I love the way you have described her hair....you know, I think I say that about all your portraits, I must have a hair ‘thing’ going on! Lol.

  • This is very Victorian Marjorie well captured. Her dress is beautiful it has that taffeta sheen. I look forward to seeing this finished.
