This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Portrait of an Elderly Woman designed from a painting by Arthur Hughes shows an elderly woman dressed in solemn black with spectacles on a string around her neck and a large cameo. She is wearing a blue and beige bonnet and looks as if she has just put her spectacles down after reading. The colors on her are subdued, and the surrounding vibrancy of color involve the drapes and chair she is sitting in that is draped with a lacy coverlet. Her demeanor is pleasant with a half smile. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
