Oh abbigail, this is very beautiful. Thank you! But Butakov here looks rather unrecognizable;).

Ah, I thought it wasn't too good. You are right
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.

I think it does look like him...if he went on a diet! Seems he was quite a  stocky fellow. You caught his eyes. This is almost a soul portrait of Alexander Ivanovich. I'm glad he and his wife had at least 7 years together...so many couples had no time then

Really? He didn't strike me as especially stocky, but then again it's just his face. Was he, in real life?
Very true :( and 7 years isn't even all that much anyway.

in the  1907 photo with his wife on thier wedding day, he's not stocky...but in later photos( 1912 etc) when convorting
with the IF , he's bigger.

Is it even proper to post this here? It's a video about my Big Pair painting that I posted here a few weeks ago.
It came out pretty well and I believe other  Romanov artists should think about incorporating their art pieces along with
the reference photos they are based on in a video...particularly if you have been doing for awhile...it would make a nice  presentation

you caught something very Tatiana in this drawing...

Tasia, firstly Happy Birthday! Wish you to be always endlessly energetic and slightly ubiquitous here, as you are now;). Secondly, here is the link about Mr Alexander Ivanovich Butakov. http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php?topic=14270.0
