Full Lotus

I feel fortunate that my father took many wonderful black and white photographs which he developed himself. I made a couple of tries at one I found of my sister Jane in a full lotus posture. 

I tried one first in black gouache, brush only.  

 
Neither really looks like Jane. Here she is.
