A very Welsh tribute to the Cambridge Royal - Miniature portraits of the young Princes and Princess.
Updated: Apr 1
A bold new era of art is happening here in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, Wales. Check out what to see here in Kidwelly. Exciting and different, every piece and explosion of imagination. Welcome to the wonderful world of Welsh artist Julia O'Sullivan.
Most of my work has an organic flow to it, all my pieces are saturated with bold colour. My artwork is contemporary with sharp lines and contrasting dramatic scenes.
When I create a piece I am unpredictable as to where the story will take me, the transformation of the story through my eyes takes on a new and sometimes very exciting twist.
I put a lot of my soul into each piece I create, sometimes they are whimsical, sometimes they are horrifying. We are after all made up of both the light and dark.
This piece was very challenging. The size of each of these portraits were so small that getting them to look like the Kensington Royal children was extremely difficult. However after many hours of perseverance I achieved what I set out to create.
This piece was inspired by the great role models the Royals are. Their sacrifice to service and their endless and tireless duty towards the British people. Their children showed that they too have their dignity and grace. As children they deserved to be portrayed in a beautiful whimsical way, that of story books, riding the Great Welsh dragons of Britain.
I must admit I love this painting, so much so I am going to create a new fairy tale series in this style.
Here we have the portrait painting of Princess Charlotte riding a great Welsh Dragon. Yes to this day, this is the best mythical creature there is.
Portrait painting of Prince Louis looking rather happy to be riding his Welsh Dragon.
And finally the portrait of Prince George, with his Welsh Dragon.
This piece of the Kensington - Cambridge Royal Children portraits is a combination of oil paint and ink. A very special paper is used to create this piece. It took 100 hours to create. The flowers represent the 4 countries of the United Kingdom. Because I am Welsh I decided to have them riding Great Welsh Dragons, everyone loves to ride Dragons!
