My 6th portrait in the series of Tudor Queens - and also the last one of Henry VIII's wives.
But my series isn't finished yet. Guess whom the next portrait will feature! :D

Anyway: I referenced most of her look from this painting: [link]
Again I took some liberties with the clothing. The nobility probably wouldn't have worn pink dresses in Tudor times because it looked like washed-out, faded red, surely a sign that you couldn't afford new clothes. At least that's what this professional Henry VIII impersonator says: [link] . Warning: The website is addictive, I spent hours reading there :D
Face reference from `lockstock

Anne of Cleves - [link]

I really love that shade of pink you chose, it gives her an innocent and pure look.

The last queen, the nicest of all and loved everyone equally and survived the king's wrath by a hair (or really neck).

I might hire you for a commission in the future. Right now, I got to many commitments to other artists. Maybe next year?
