#portraitchallenge: mary beale

Thursday is #PortraitChallenge day at the Virtual Studio! Here's London National Portrait Gallery's self-portrait of Mary Beale, from around 1665. She's considered England's first female professional painter (how cool is that?) and you can read more about here.

And another interpretation by Dave Windett!

Keep an eye on @StudioTeaBreak and #PortraitChallenge to see if more drawings turn up. :)
