You nailed it buddy! Standing before them is the Rev. Robert Kirk, a true figure in history, who fell into the faery realm. They were kind to him in the beginning....

Why thank you Darla! I used a little gesso mixed in with the watercolor for the pattern on her dress. I don't like the smell of the liquid frisket.

Jonathan Pryce? You're right, he does have his resemblence. Once again Mary, thank you for your kindest of words.

A lovely portrayal, if I am right, the King is conveying something discretely to the Queen, who though seemingly unapparent listens intently and maintains a regal dignified demeanour...am I right? I am ain't I? lol! anyway James, yet another great display of detail and colour! excellent!

Guest's picture

Beautiful, James! I really like the composition of this work. And the king is a hottie!

WOW! I am so bowled over by your work. These two characters have such a qeit strength in the way you've portrayed them. Her expression is just beautiful.
Did you mask to get the pattern in the fabric of her dress?

Gorgeous, James! Great details, colours, the works! The bloke reminds me a bit of Jonathan Pryce (hubba hubba!) - I've always thought he had a rather regal air about him.

Art at its best.
