Kings and Queens

Welcome the new paintings from the lay figures “Kings and Queens”.

The lay figures would have been used as under studies for many of the full sized portraiture paintings commissioned by royalty and the military to display their power and glory.

These paintings will explore the many aspects of this connection.

The canvases are 120 x 150 cm. They have been primed with thin paper and gesso.

These first images show the charcoal and marks, drawing in the lay figures position and indicating the approach to the subject.
