Quite so, SuddenLife, and thanks for replying. The main problem being (in this particular case) that there is so little clue at source, and what there is isn't really flattering. I'm an avid fan of the literary skills of both Jane Austen and the Bronte's, but what I painted probably bears little resemblance to the Charlotte Bronte character as she was. What clues there are tend to the plain, but it's easier to glamourise than be accurate when so little is known. (Believe me, I've researched all the drawings, paintings and possible photographs available). They are just for my own use anyway and I enjoyed doing them.
