Kings and Queens of Old England

This is a series of miniatures - click the thumbnails to see each one:

The 'Kings and Queens of Old England' are a curiously anthropomorphic series of miniatures I did in January 2006. They started accidentally, with a rather regal-looking half-frog lady, and developed along the same lines to various other wild animals, and one dog. I'm not sure where this series came from or where it was going - there was going to be at least one other 'king' to go with all the queens - a Jackdaw - but I ran out of time and other work needed doing. They they are tiny paintings, only 4x6 inches large, and so I was able to 'finish' them to a very high degree, and my aim really became simply to create a selection of slightly disturbing 'portraits' pretty much for fun, with for once no real plot or story behind them - in fact the lack of an actual background 'story' adds to their mysterious quality. It's a series I may get back to one day.
