The Queen & Prince Philip 1999 by 

Over the last year I have had the honour of working with Kent Gavin – one of the most prolific photographers of the Royal family in the world. Having won Royal photographer of the year an unprecedented seven times and many more awards and accolades he kindly agreed to collaborate with me.
Here is another drawing in our series of Royal portraits to celebrate the Queens Jubilee. The drawing is of The Queen & Prince Philip in their carriage attending The Knights of the Garter ceremony 14th June 1999 at Windsor.
Drawn as always with Derwent pencils on A2 Daler-Rowney cartridge paper.

    Absolutely stunning realism. I don’t often say this, and I don’t necessarily consider it a compliment, but I truly thought someone had slipped a photo in the group at first! I had to look really close to be sure it wasn’t. The skin tones (hers especially) and her soft gray hair are awe inspiring. I have never been able to get realistic skin tones with color pencil, so have stuck to doing animals in color. Your colors are so rich without being ‘waxy’ looking. And the expressions… Just an all around terrific color pencil drawing.

  • Hi Marlene,
    So sorry for not replying sooner to your comment – which I think may possibly be one of the most flattering I’ve ever received! I was really concerned about the skin tones when I first started drawing people in color as it could go so very wrong! but after a couple of attempts I found about 5 colors that did the the job and I have stuck to the same 5 for each drawing every time! I love your art work and truly believe that with the skills you possess that you would totally master it! Go for it!
    Many Thanks Sam
