So thrilled to be a part of this from afar......The Royal Wedding.....April 29th 2011

William and Kate 3- etsy

I am so looking forward to watching the Royal Wedding....It will be amazing and I was also thrilled to be commissioned to create a special commemorative watercolour for this event.....The original painting is a watercolour and ink on French 140lb paper.....and is heading to it's new home in London England.....I can't wait to see the Abbey all decorated with 82,000 dollars worth of trees...it is supposed to look like an enchanted forest.....and I can't wait to see all the flowers....let alone her dress and well ....just about everything.......I am enjoying every moment vicariously through Kate.....

here is the procession route all mapped out...click on it to see a larger version of it

will and kate


I was also thrilled that they allowed me to also use this piece as a limited Edition Print in my collection on-line.....

I am submitting this painting today for Paint Party Friday....as it seems like a perfect fit for a painting and a perfect post for a very Special Historical Day....

Happy Creating and Happy Friday Everyone....
and

Congratulations Prince William and Princess Catherine!

Hi Diana,

I am watching the Royal wedding as I type.
I loved being able to watch this beautiful celebration of this gorgeous couple's wedding. Katherines lace dress was gorgeous, her lily of the valley bouquet and I wish them a happy and long life together.
The comission you did of the Royal couple is fabulous.

Hugs
Carolyn

I don't have any interest in the wedding but I think this is a lovely portrait of a happy young couple.

Wonderful Diana! The painting captures the couple very well.
Being the lazy person I am, I just checked the pictures of her dress and it reminded me of one that Princess Grace wore....lovely! :-)
Have a great day!

Beautiful painting and what an exciting commission!

Pointy Pix said...

Congrats on your commission. You've done a great job, especially on William. I have to admit to not beong the slightest bit interested in the royal family and didnt watch the wedding although i saw her dress in the newspaper today and it was beautiful! I can appreciate though. How exciting it must've been for you to get the chance to do this portrait if you were looking forward so much to the wedding day!
