King Henri Valois’ Bastard
So this is the finished bust... it is quite strange really because up until very recently I only painted fantasy, but then I saw something in historical works that really spoke to me. So much so it has driven me to also produce a digital magazine dedicated to the genre. For a lot of people the genre is considered for the older generation and the “rivet counters” etc and so I hope to breathe new life into the genre. It seems every month another magazine dies so I feel a certain burden to grow something bigger and better than what has gone before.
This bust will feature in a forthcoming issue along with several other versions painted by my students. If you have an interest in the historical figure painting genre you can check out my mag here
