Betty (redirect)

No, this doesn’t look anything like the sketch in the previous post.  Betty has very soulful eyes, and although the previous image carries with it a touching story, it failed to capture the essence that her eyes normally possess.  Betty is the wise older woman to Addie’s imp.  Betty is the regal queen to Addie’s court jester.

I like this image not only because it reveals her in more of a royal portrait style, but because of the contrast from shadow to light.  As it works up, the blues off of her black coat will come out, as will the soulfulness in her eyes.
