Hattie Tom

Hattie Tom

As we approach Thanksgiving I have decided to focus my attention on Native Americans.

The subject here is Hattie Tom, a sixteen year old Mescalero Apache photographed in 1899 by Frank A. Rinehart.

This is my first portrait of a person, and my first sketch of a face. The dimensions are 11 x 14, drawn in 3B-6B lead.
