Rolf Armstrong is a favorite golden age magazine artist, and my overall favorites of his work are his College Humor covers. The portraits of women are certainly vintage, but the colors, compositions and moods are timeless.
The delicate tracery of the veil in the first one here, with the delicate shadow is subtly amazing considering the pastel medium he's using.
Above and below, reworking the cover for a calendar.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
