They are all made from portraits by old masters.
The first is part of a larger painting, 1square meter, where the reference is from Agnolo Bronzino (again):
The next portrait is a portrait I painted as a book cover after a painting by Ivan or Jacob Argunov, it was not quite clear which of the two painted the unknown woman:
Below you see a portrait I did of Kunigunde of Austria (ca 1485) after a portrait by an unknown artist:
Lastly I show you this portrait of Alexandra Pavlovna ca 1790, (princess of Russia) I painted on a box as part of a birthday present for my niece:
I enjoyed painting these portraits. I hadn't done a lot of painting so the change from the pencils/graphite was wonderful!
Thank you all for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!
