I’ve been continuing to research and draw the Romanov family as part of the development for my Alice project and here is the first set that I did during the Easter break. Most of the images have been drawn from the various books I have been reading as part of my research and this set includes images of Nicholas II, his wife Alexandra and eldest and youngest daughters Olga and Anastasia.
With the portraits I have been using different materials as seen in the images, from graphite or brown pencils to a combination of pencil and ink. I really like how most of these portraits are turning out and I’m particularly fond of the one of Olga and the one of Nicholas in 1917. There will be more of these portraits to come featuring other members of the family.
