Historical Portrait: Eleanor Britton

Historical Portrait, Eleanor Britton (Mrs William Musgrave), 1821, Yale
by artist Anna Claypoole Peale

My interpretation of an historical portrait made with acrylic paint on 5" x 7" gessobord. There are certain details that I chose to leave out of this portrait when I painted it because I felt that it wold take away from the intensity of the facial expression of the young girl.
