Sketch of new face for Flapper















I used the small photograph of Julie Andrews that doesn’t really look like her as the basis for this painting because I liked the fur, hat, and pearls.

The face and background details are not like the photo at all. You’ll notice the face in the painting is fuller and has a more healthy color than Julie’s rather pale, gaunt looking visage.

Julie is squinting in the photo. I opened the girl’s eyes in the painting a bit and gave her a more wistful expression, rather than going with the boredom that seems to prevail in the photo and even in my sketch.
