Portrait for Kassie: Complete

It took a few tries to finally get the colors and background just right, but I really like the outcome. I’m delivering this one in person, so there’s no mysterious envelope picture in my post.

Sepia is a difficult color to capture, and I found out there are many different types… ranging from yellow, to orange, to brown. I chose a reddish-brown, but it looks more yellow in sunlight. I think it’s a great color that will match most rooms. I like how it looks in my living room.
