Young Woman's Head on a Pink Background . . .

. . . my reference was from the original portrait by Italian painter Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931). Boldini was quite prolific, with a broad range of styles. This particular painting was chosen for its dramatic use of light and shadow.

 

Painted with acrylics in my "A Diary of Faces" book, 7-1/2x11, on collaged text over fabriano hotpress.
