Oh she looks so heartbroken... I was lucky enough to portray her for a reenactment I did many years ago, but it's stayed with me. She's just that special. At least to me she is. You are an amazing artist. I like how you drew her with rather boney hands. Many people didn't think she was beautiful at the time because of how thin she was. The color of her dress is perfect, as is her hood. Her expression is the PERFECT mix of pain, confusion, anger, and helplessness. The storm in the BG is the perfect touch. This is beautiful. Thank you for honoring her like this. You did miss the deformity on her hand, but it's debatable whether or not she really had that (as you know she became very unpopular in her day and some very not-nice things were said about her) and thank you very much for skipping that terrible lump on her throat (no thanks to Henry for giving it to her) I like the idea of a physically perfect portrait too. The "B" necklace was the perfect touch.
Oh dear, poor slandered, slandered girl... and only a girl... just 27 by some accounts. She was between 27, and 31 I believe...that's kinda young if you ask me. ;) (lol, I'm younger then that though) For those of you who have only seen the movie(s), and TV stuff, she's really really worth reading about. Dig around for old stuff for the best stuff. It takes digging, but it's SO worth it. Read her letters, both to and from her. It's fascinating stuff (If you're a history nut like me!) and you'll learn a lot. I hope someday to be as brave as Anne.
