first portrait

So, the portrait I began yesterday turned into a man and I enjoyed making the costume and monacle most of all. I’m not sure where stumpwork and/or embroidery ends and dressing dolls begins, but does it matter? I think he’ll look good in an oval frame with a wife in a companion frame alongside so I guess she’ll be the next one to make.

Update: see the wife’s portrait here.
