An acrylic on canvas. Portrait of a Medieval Girl, losely based on Mary Boleyn. 40 × 40 cm. (16″ × 16″)

I had already experimented with this image using Corel Painter, so thought it was about time I tried to paint it.

    it’s wonderfuly done and i like the piece, but she looks a little demonic. is that the look you were going for? it looks nice either way.

  • Thanks for the view. Not necessarily a demonic look. In the reference photo, it is quite an intense stare. I had some problems with the printers at work printing off a decent copy—so there was some distortion in the finished product. A lot of the time, I just couldn’t see what I was painting. I kept having to rush to the computer monitor and back to the canvas.

    Really lovely.
    Her eyes are so piercing and mistrustful…but then it IS based on M Boleyn.

  • Thanks Gypsy. I know the story, but haven’t yet seen the film—is it any good?
