Oil Portrait from Tin Type Photo Bubbles

I came across a book at a Library that had early American Tin Type photographs, it was on the subject of, The American History of Photography. The Photographs, many of them inspired me. I love antiquity, old time scenes and scenery. I painted several paintings based on these sepia toned,tin type photos, from the book. I enjoyed applying colors as a creative exercise. I am considered to be a Tonalist, in my approach to realism in painting, with color there is also tone, that being from light to dark. I was inspired by the old time way of enjoying something as simple as blowing bubbles. The antique enamel bowl, their clothing, and the wooden crate. The fun of two little girls so long ago.  Art By Lisabelle
