I LOVE the work on this page! The lines are so delicate...Tsarevich Alexei, you use a really cool drawing style (which I've probably said before...it's very true).

Don't not have anything to post today, but we're doing "altered books" in art class (changing/decorating with paint and cutouts & stuff to a specific theme) and mine's based on old black-and-white photographs...about 8 pages are required and the Romanovs are getting their own page, of course :). I'm going to post pictures of that page when it's done.
There is a clock that never strikes...
There is a cathedral that goes down and a lake that goes up...
There is a little carriage abandoned in the copse...
There is a troupe of little actors in costume...
And when you are hungry or thirsty, there is someone who drives you away.

My newest portrait. Not very good. I hope to color it!

Alexei.
Please don't take without my permission. Thanks.

Thank you! You all make me blush! I have drawn Nicholas recently, but I wasn't happy with the results.

I am working on Tatiana Nikolaievna drawing. However, here is the sketch:



Paper dimensions -- 11.4 x 16.3 inches, it seems I will have to do the another shoulder of her on other piece of paper.  Use HB, 2B pencils. (And a one more, there is no mark on it).

Here is what I have done so far:



I took the photos with my cam. Once I finish it, it will be scanned. However, I made a little mistake in shading her chin. It will take some time till I am completely done. I am still 'sketching'. :-D

Well, basically you just take a large hardback book (glue some of the pages together so it's not floppy) and re-decorate the pages according to your theme. It's like making a new book.

The other pages will be of other people from history that I'm interested in, like Rudolph Valentino and other actors, Vaslav Nijinsky and Anna Pavlova, Arthur Rimbaud...and others too that I can't think of right now :D

nena ! I love where you are going with Tatiana! Keep at it. Marvelous and amazing already !!

I have new found sympathy for the photographers who took Tatiana's picture during her life . I have tried for days to take a decent photo  of my TN portrait... and finally got one I feel I can post. It's easy to say, but I think it's better than my photograph !

 However here is my Tatiana Nikolaevna  and  her video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3NpGULt44g  showing the process.

and now my OTMA , 1914  portrait group is complete

I love it, you've captured Tanya perfectly.  In fact, you've done a wonderful job on all of OTMA.  Thanks for sharing your paintings with us, BlessOTMA.

Thank you Tim! I know she's your favorite, so if you like her painting , that means a great deal.   I love sharing my Romanov pictures with those on here, AP...with others who also care about the family...and who KNOW what they  looked like. It means more than I can say if others on AP are pleased with them .
