I set myself a challenge this week of drawing Queen Elizabeth II.
Her Royal Highness has been on the thrown here in the United Kingdom for 63 years and so I decided that this would be a great challenge for me.
First things first to take a good look through the archives and become inspired by photos of her through the ages.
My Muse Portraits are not based around age, they capture the inner you, so I obviously was pulled to draw HRH when she was younger.
I think I have her reflection - do you?
In choosing her mantra for the Muse Mantra, I discovered the quote from a 1957 Christmas speech, which I think is very apt for these times.
I also videoed me creating the illustration - it's a techy kinda thing for me to record them as I love making mini films.
Love Jules x
