Tudor Paintings

This is my Anne Boleyn painting. I read everything
I can get my hands on about the Tudor period.  I love Allison Weir books and Philippa Gregory books.  I visited Hever Castle, where Anne Boleyn grew up, their family home, it was amazing!  It was so neat to see her bedroom and her personal items, even the bed where, King Henry VIII slept, when he visited.  I love England and all it's history. 
This is my painting of Jane Seymour.  I know this isn't factual of what she looked like, this is more the Tudors Showtime series interpretation of her.


  1. I love the style of your painting. They are both lovely!

  2. Thanks Katie! They were fun to paint.

  3. I live 5 minutes up the road from Hever Castle and I love it there too! Did you go in the maze?

    Cool paintings.

  4. Yes, I do remember the maze, that was fun, and I did get lost! I'm so jealous you live that close. Beautiful place! Have you been to Hatfield House? Great place too.
