A special exhibition that included my portrait of pregnant Crown Princess Mary.
Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen from September 2016 until April, 2017.
This portrait was a personal and untraditional one of the future Queen of Denmark pregnant with Denmark’s future King. The portrait of the Princess was exhibited together with the dress that she wore on this day.
The exhibition also showcased 2000 other artifacts from the Danish Royal Family’s collection of art, jewelry, clothes and memories.
What an enjoyable little painting this was to paint! I loved working with these blue hues to create the illusion of light captured in this bottle. I am from Bristol, so there is a natural fondness for the beautiful and famous Bristol Blue Glass
I think I can count on one hand how many abstract paintings I have done. It is unknown territory where I tread carefully as I am quite inexperienced in this field. I share this one with a little insecurity!
