Portrait of a Princess

HRH Princess Elizabeth 1928
ACEO size 2.5 x 3.5 inches
Acrylic on watercolour paper

Had another bash at the Princess Elizabeth portrait, this time in better lighting, in the studio rather than on the sofa and in acrylic instead of ink.
Oh and in miniature, ACEO size 2.5 x3.5 inches, the image size I have uploaded is larger than the original.

The reference was black & white with very high contrast, making the eyes almost completely black, so it was quite the challenge breathing life colours into her.

I should be auctioning her on eBay later this week, you can keep updated by visiting my online shop.

Work in progress

Anita, this is so charming! So tiny, too. I could never work that small. Awesome work!
