Catherine of Aragon
Pencil Sketch on Cartridge Paper
Today’s daily post is a fantasy sketch of Catherine of Aragon, the first wife of Henry VIII. I’ve been watching the first season of the BBC series “The Tudors” this week and I recently read the book “The Other Boleyn Girl”. In both of these my favourite character was been Queen Catherine who both in fiction and in historical record is portrayed as a good person who lived a privilege but tragic life full of loss and betrayal… I do have a thing about tragic figures lol
This sketch is inspired by several period paintings of Catherine.
