Ethel as a Young Woman

"Ethel as a Young Woman"  (Watercolor)  C. Eastwood, 2013
This one is special for me.  It's my grandmother, Ethel Turner (the original ET!).  My instructor suggested I go ahead and try for a monochromatic sepia-tone since it's an old photo.  I'll probably need to revisit this at some point and try to get the likeness better, but it was fun to work on.  Since I never knew her other than as my sweet (but very old) grandmother, I like to think she'd be pleased that the first picture I've tried is a significantly younger version.
