New painting


I have recently completed a new acrylic painting.

This was inspired by a found image of a young boy with an eagle, paintings by Holbein and paintings of Edward VI .

It is based on the hierarchy of falconry, starting with a kestrel for a knave and ending with an eagle for an emperor.

I even used the portrait of Richard III for the Collar of State and the hand holding the ring.

I am quite pleased with how the various textures have come out.

I call this picture "The Emperor"

Until next time
