Manly women

A painting done for the Avalanche blog. I don't know where my crazy ideas come from. I just start to paint and the ideas develop with the drawing. I used a man as reference which is still a little too apparent, though some of the manly features work well for the subject.

A good one. The glasses, eyes and nose combo really sell this one. Great old lady pattern on the wall, too.

What a great characterization. The shades of grey on her chin make me expect to see a hint of mustache... was that intentional?
