    Guess Who?

    A Change from doing pirates,Thought I would have a go at a famous(Or perhaps Infamous) King ,I hope you can see who it is from my painting. I used a reference picture to guide my effort,and I have made very slight changes to make him look a little more realistic,you may be able to spot the differences if you have seen the original by Holbein,the original artist,I looked at as many paintings as I could find,to get a good impression of what this King looked like,didnt rely totally on the reference painting,and this is NOT a paint over,hope you like the result.....Jack.

    Gee that looks a lot like Henry VIII. Could it be? Jack.....it is hard to tell from the original painting of him by Holbein. Well done my friend.....well done!

    Um was he a pirate too? LOL

    He was such an insincere, self serving pillock, wasn't he? Excellent painting and very realistic!

    jacktar51,
    You have captured the striking image of a possible young Henry VIII
    in all of his royal (and unpleasant) personna. He tended to have his
    wives beheaded when they would not produce a male heir.

    A most elegant portrait showing his better side!
