My last post was about the Royal Balcony in the Bear House at Newby Hall. Noblesse oblige – I know, I know, they are all noble… 🙂 -, I had started painting Queen Elisabeth and Prince Philip.
Next to them were a young couple with two kids. I assume they were Prince William and Kate with George and Charlotte. At least the resemblance was amazing, and it was a delight to paint them.
Little George was holding a teddy bear himself.. one could hardly see him, but what a cute detail! My Truffle McFurry, so obsessed with celebrities, saw him very well though, and asked me to have him as George’s bear on the painting… I could not refuse -can you see Truffy on the painting?-, but no way I would ever give my Truffle to anybody in the world, not even to princes, princesses, kings or queens or even gods! I could lend him to pose for a photo with them, but that’s it!
