Portrait from Vintage Photo





I worked on this picture a good two hours before I realized I had the center line off and my gentleman was looking in the wrong direction. Luckily, my husband had the camera to take pictures of the boys, so no evidence of my mistake remains! This is my "take two". I've got some good definition from the nose up, but I was not able to bring the lower half of the face into focus this time. Also, it's still a little flat. I am charged with "colorizing" this photo, so it will need some ruddier, more life-like tones.

This guy looks like he could come from my family.
