Historical Portrait: Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre,  acrylic, gouache & ink on panel, (5" x 7"),  2014


I admit that I'm a sucker for historical movies. The PBS station is my go-to channel for all things historical when it comes to TV series. Jane Eyre by Emily Bronte makes for good reading and the 2011 movie version was somber, but good. Hence, the above historical portrait painting of Jane Eyre is intense, but beautiful and moody. I love how the lace collar came out.
