New Vintage Project

I have never painted in just black and white but I will give it a whirl. My Great Aunt had a bridal and ready to wear shop for 25 years. I grew up in that shop as my immediate family all worked there.. This is a photo of their first location. My mom is left, granddad middle and My Aunt mom’s sister on right, though you probably can’t see right now. follow along as I bring it to the paper.

My second day of painting I learned I loved this technique!  I will keep working and hope I don’t over work it. ……sigh……..
