Queen Elizabeth and an Ermine & more..... [Nov. 15th, 2006|08:40 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I finished her!! Yay!!

Before I begin - a quick head's up - I will be visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday and will be gone much of next week - Monday through Saturday the 25th - this will not affect any of these auctions in any way. The only effect you will notice is that orders placed during that time will not be shipped until I get back home to Florida that weekend. No biggie. If you have questions, just ask me!

Okay! First of all the new painting - clearly inspired by my recent adventures at the renaissance festival, I have a Tudor-style portrait of Queen Elizabeth the First pictured with an ermine (a winter weasel who is often pictured in royal portraits) - called "Queen Elizabeth with an Ermine." This is a HIGHLY detailed painting - I spent an inordinate amount of time on the dress and details, and I am very proud of how it turned out. One of my best, for sure. You can see her below:

Queen Elizabeth's face turned out so divine!! If only I had her complexion!! It goes without saying, but the details are also exquisite!

Lovely as always!!!

Jasmine, I am in awe of this piece.. I think the facial expression and detail are indeed one of your best...The eyes, still signature JBG, are more realistic and intense... The dress is incredible... especially the collar...( must have given you fits!! ) Incredible piece .. just incredible..

Elizabeth's face is extraordinary, Jasmine. Wow! And as always the animal counterpart in your painting is stunningly represented. Great work!

Woah, totally gorgeous. The detail is amazing, you must have so much patience. I know I sure don't, which is why most of my art never leaves me content heh
