Book of Portraits Part 40: Victorian Mourners

I haven’t worked in this sketchbook since August, something which I didn’t realise, mainly because I’ve been busy with other things, but this week I decided to get back into drawing some portraits. I came across images of Victorian women in mourning online and thought they looked very interesting due to their ominous, long veils which they wear and thought they would be a great image to draw and to help me get back into this kind of drawing.
