Does anyone know of any portrait in existence of Nicky in the uniform of the Scots Greys?

There is at least one portrait of Nicholas in Greys uniform. The officers' mess of what are now the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards have one.

Thanks for posting these! The amazing thing about the portraits (Royalty or Commoners ones) is that the facial features are generally well showed, but sometimes, artist just COULDN'T reflect the personality of their portrayed models on their painted faces. Sometimes, the likeness is just striking, but their eyes are empty, with a great lack of expression. THis is what I think when watching some Nicholas and Alix portraits. They uses to be good paintings, but without soul...

The most crucial part of painting a face is to capture the shape and look of the eyes
And since the eyes are probably the most recognizable part of the face, and set us apart, sometimes a very little to change the way they look and they convey mood and emotion like no other feature can. Sometimes that why some portraits dont look exactly like Nicky , Alix or anyone in that matter...
