In one of those internet searches that lead from here to there, we stumbled upon one of my favorite paintings. Particularly, this one:
Painted by Sir John Everett Millais in 1878, it depicts the ill-fated Princes Edward and Richard in 1483. Two of the renowned casualties of the War of the Roses, it’s been a mystery for some time exactly how and why they were murdered.
Boy Blue of Fables - Commissioned Painting
A recent instance in which I was commissioned for a physical painting rather than a digital piece. Linework was laid out with a pen before the tones were created using sumi ink in various washes.
(As a personal, nitpicky artist’s note, I’d like to add that the lightning is a true white in reality, but since this was a larger piece, what you see is an imperfect photo rather than a scan.)
