alitta2Looks awesome! Reminds me those medieval miniatures.
Too bad I haven't heard of her before, but as they say, every day is an opportunity to learn something new :)

SaltwaterThank you very much. :-)
Later maybe I will do Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon.
They set the bases of modern Spain.

alitta2Yes, I know they were the ones who formed the united Spanish Kingdom, shortly after the recapture of Granada

SaltwaterThank you very much.  :D
But honestly, I don't have much merit, because it was not really difficult to paint.  :-)
