Please feel free to click on the link in my signature and it will take you to my tumblr account where you can see my other work which you will no doubt dismiss as "photoshopped"

New portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge. You will love this one!

Kelly Mathews ‏@allthingsregal 25m RT @MajestyMagazine Duchess of Cambridge portrait gift via Macleay Island artist http://www.bordermail.com.au/story/2208208/duchess-kate-portrait-a-gift-from-macleay-island-artist/ … #RoyalVisitNZ pic.twitter.com/mkQYMJjPco
EDIT: David Wells, the artist, was kind enough to let me know the original photo from which the work proceeded was by Tim Rooke for Rex Media. You might know Mr. Rooke from his cover photo of Harry in dress whites and blue beret on the cover of Tattler. Yes, that cover.

Now that is a beautiful portrait. It is definitely realistic and is way better than the others I have seen. This artist should be given a medal for his excellent work.

It's a very beautiful portrait indeed. The tiara is a great piece but I find it sad that it hasn't been seen since Diana last wore it in the early 90's. I'm hoping at least Catherine will pull it out, dust it off and wear it someday.

I couldn't paint King George VI without doing one of his much beloved wife Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
These are stunning!! The difference between the first one of Bertie and the one of him in full Naval Dress Uniform is so strikingly sad. Between the strain of taking on a job he was not prepared for and the stress of the War years just aged him beyond his years. :(

I love the one you've done of Her Late Majesty. That smile and twinkle in the eyes....Now that's The Queen Mum we all remember w/love. It's just lovely and perfect.

Thanks for sharing your talent w/us and look forward to more. :)

Dman, Hopefully Catherine Elizabeth will wear the magnificent tiara someday.
After all the tiara has Cambridge in the title {Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara}. Also her title is The Duchess of Cambridge.

I personally think that's a pretty fabulous photo of HM. She has such a twinkle in her eye! One of those photos that just makes me want to smile back at it.

HM has such a lovely smile and I like her new portrait. The black and white is a nice idea.

David Bailey's portrait of Queen to mark birthday-
BBC News - David Bailey's portrait of Queen to mark birthday

I think it's a great and warm portrait of The Queen. The eyes of her father, grandfather and grandmother comes shinning through.
