The one with the polka-dot skirts?

Yes, that's the one! Does anyone have it in better quality? Though thank you, Sunny!

Also, would anyone happen to have a good quality photo of toddler OTMA sitting in front of a Christmas tree in the Playroom?

Hey everyone! I'm looking for the photo of OTMA together on a beach (the well known one of them huddled together in long dresses and hats around 1908ish, and Anastasia looks completely miserable). Either B&W or even coloured versions would be terrific! Anyone think they can help me out?

I think this is the one you want. It looks like a lake, but it's  the Dnieper river . It seems there was a church on the other shore that  NII liked to look at from this spot . Very evocative photo

That's it! Thank you terribly : )

I'm wondering if someone can help me out! I'm looking for a photograph of Nicholas II standing in front of a lake, his back is facing the lens and there's a funny looking gap between his legs because they're standing apart (it's just something I always noticed about the photograph). It's kind of mournful looking, they used it in the A&E Nicholas and Alexandra documentary.

OTMA 1914

blessOTMA, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL work! I'm so glad to see it completed, and what an accomplishment it is. I think it may be my favourite of the lot (not that I don't like all of them immensely). Her eyes are very well done, and her expression is captured quite perfectly. A round of applause to you.

I love Olive Garden.
Especially the free bread.


And Happy Belated Birthday : D

Her expression is captured quite perfectly, it's possibly your best yet. Truly exquisite, Anne!

But that is always the case! We always think :  it could have been better! And that is what drives one on! Often at the end of a painting, I think,  NOW I'm ready to paint this picture! lol! My own Olga will be posted tomorrow! :)

Anne, I'm very excited for the final piece to be posted!


And Nena, excellent work! Will you be doing all of OTMAA from that particular photograph?

You already know how much I love it.

You draw the Romanovs the most realistically. And beautifully.

Yes. I know how much you love it :3

I have to agree with Holly :) Wonderful work.I wonder is painting only your hobby or something more?

I actually didn't paint this, it's done in pencil and I fiddled with the skin on photoshop a bit. Here's a more honest look at what it's like in person: http://www.keeganyoung.deviantart.com/#/d2vupok




Astonishing and amazing!!!!! You must have prints made of this! imo
Keegan, in all seriousness...this needs to be a print. Truly amazing

Thank you so much Anne! Yes, I'm working on getting it done : D

Honestly amazing Keegan.
Fabulous work!

Laura, thank you so very much : ))))))))))

That is indeed very lovely! Truly exquisite. How long did it take you to draw?
I love the way they look so real and sort of glowing. Their blouses look like real silk! I also love Tatiana's little smile, and their heights. The background makes me sad...  :'(

I've been working on this since last August, but for months it's sat there as just a sketch on paper. I finally got around to do some serious shading when I got off school back in April. So the majority of the work was done over a 5 month period. Tatiana seems to be most people's favourite, even my own. I was so incredibly pre-occupied with worrying about their heights when drawing this, as I thought I'd made Tatiana too tall. But I found one picture of them taken in late 1917 or early 1918 that showed them pretty much at those same heights so I felt a little better. The background is very much meant to be sad, a reminder of what happened and what was lost.

It's just splendid one! Well done!

Thank you Nena!
