More Paintings in a painting

In case you were wondering, this painting is 15.5" X 21.25". Some of the small paintings are only 2" X 1.75" including frame!

The next paintings I completed were
The Toilette by Charles Robert Leslie, ca. 1849    (bottom right)
Dolly Varden by William Powell Frith, ca. 1842    (second row up, east wall)

In the painting, The Toilette,  also called The Necklace, Leslie depicts a woman known for her "raven black hair and arched eyebrows." He also used her for his painting Griselda.

Linda, this piece is mesmerizing. Talk about minute detail. Can't wait to see it finished.
