Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal by Hilary Robinson

British television has been running a series of new films of Shakespeare’s 4 Plantagenet history plays, Richard II, Henry IV parts one and two, and Henry V under the title of “The Hollow Crown”. This is my portrait of the actor who plays Prince Hal, at the point where he stops being the “madcap Prince of Wales” and accepts that he has to be king.

Soft pastel and pastel pencils on Daler Rowney Murano paper A4
Original available

I can’t imagine anyone would want it as a card so I won’t put that up, but here it is as a framed print.

Yum. If only I was 20 years younger….

    Ahh! I think Tom Hiddleston is beyond cute. Sigh Good work, Hilary. Though, he seems to be drawn with a hardness, that makes it look like him and yet, doesn’t. :):)

  • Thank you, Lauren…. I think…
