Banbury, Oxfordshire


This image of the queen was painted using acrylic in April 2016 as part of a window display for the Banbury Old Town Party. I searched through hundreds of images online before settling for this beautifully understated pose when she was much younger. I do not commonly do portraits so this was a real challenge for me. I had to do further research on her crown to try and properly recreate the finer details. I am very proud of the finished product, although, as often is the case, at the time I wished I could scrap it and start all over again!
