Princess Anne - the Princess Royal
Personal Work, 2021
In looking for inspirational faces to capture, and the lives that they have lived, Princess Anne is an individual that is truly an inspiration. As a major royal patron for multiple charities and organizations, as well as an accomplished athlete, and the sole bearer of the title Princess Royal, Princess Anne has lived a life that can be admired. I desired for this piece, based off of an image of her early years, to capture that sense of strength, honesty, and elegance that are within such a phenomenal individual. Certain aspects of this piece, such as the glow of her complexion, the clarity of her eyes, the vivid beading of her dress, and the graciousness of her tiara, were all done intentionally to show a sense of unity and luminescence, as though she is lighting the room.
