A Queen..


Practice for Suzi Blu's Piety &Passion class. I did it on watercolor paper instead of wood for now to practice some of the techniques. Not completely pleased but I am sharing anyway.

  5. Oh, you've captured something really special here in her expression - her vulnerability behind the authority.

  7. Really lovely. It presents with all the feel of her contemporary portraits with the vibrance and whimsey of our contemporary artforms. I really like this.

  8. I love it when you share your creations Jackie! I think you really captured her essence very well. Queen Elizabeth lived with such passion in whatever she did and you can tell from your painting that you captured her uniqueness.
