Painting Queen Elizabeth I

Every day I consider myself fortunate that I get to do what I love! Here’s a few of photos of my progress on Elizabeth I of England portrait. I am using the Armada Portrait by George Gower as my inspiration. I have included a couple of very short videos of me painting a shadow behind a pearl and also me painting a lace cuff detail. Be sure to check out the photos at the end of the post too.

I hope to have it completed in the coming days. I am loving the details of lace and jewelry. Painting the gems is almost as good as owning them!
