Aping Louisa

I'm still trying to get a grip on the palette knife, and in this case aping a well-known portrait of a well-known author .. not good, but improved from previous attempts.  The original, by Louisa Matthíasdóttir from 1942, is much larger, and shows the full figure of the author Halldór Laxness, seated, reading.

Oil, approx. 24 x 30 cm
