Yesterday I was able to finish my Steampunk Queen painting, and I’m very happy with how she turned out. Our own queen Maxima was the inspiration for this piece.
I immediately sent the painting to Atelier Magazine, a Dutch art related magazine. They’re organizing a painting contest with the theme “royal”. One hundred paintings will be exhibited in Apeldoorn. I hope my painting will be one of them. Just have to keep my fingers crossed.
Steampunk Queen was painted with acrylics on gessoboard. She measures 9.1 x 12 inch / 23 x 30,5cm. I put in some symbolic items, like the cameo she wears, the orange sash on her shoulder and the steampunk Monarch butterfly (which also happens to be orange).
