Well, everyone's probably already seen this, but here we go:
GD Olga: Golden Slumbers

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullabye
`````````````````````````````````````````````
Based on the song Golden Slumbers by the Beatles. Beautiful song! I have never drawn Grand Duchess Olga before, so, here she is! Thanks for adding me Olga fanclub!

Art(C)Gorseheart, me
GDO(C) Herself
GS(C) The Beatles
Lyrics(C) Some lyric site.

You're a Beatles fan, Gorseheart?  Me, too; I'm actually lucky enough to have seen both Paul and Ringo in concert!  Your picture of Olga is beautiful, too! :)

I based the drawing off a picture from Livadia from when she's standing in the arbor of Glycinia. It's in the Romanov Family Album I think....

Gorgeous, Gorseheart! I love the colors and, of course, the Beatles lyrics. ;]

Exactly...while they were staying  at Livadia when the photo was taken , the photo was taken at a villa ruin called Oreanda   ...Yale album  3. I love that one particularly and the one with Tatiana taken the same day because they are stunning course...but also because  they seem to be arranging themselves as if they are in paintings... the type of paintings their palaces were full off...and now I 'm putting them in paintings.  When I see these photos I have to wonder : what if there was no WW1?...the photos are from May of 1914.Here's another from that day you may like to do =)

Oh, now I know what you're talking about. Anne, why don't you do a painting of that yourself? But of course you already have Olga's Russian dress photo lined up...

I will definitely be doing one from these 1914 photos  at some point ...because they are so astonishingly gorgeous...I mean their beauty is like a brilliant light. ...but there's other paintings ahead of that ...such as  finishing the current  1915 OTM funeral one and then there is an Anastasia one, then finally, one of Alix and Nicky...even before I get to Olga in the Russian court dress...so lots of painting FUN ahead =)

I know what you mean, Anne. So many of their photographs would make beautiful portraits.

Great work, Alice! I like their expressions.
