The National Portrait Gallery – Ruth Tomlinson

The National Portrait Gallery



Queen Mary I


I was recently asked in an interview, where I go in London for inspiration.  I would recommend to anyone  a visit to the National Portrait Gallery, in particular all the Elizabethan and Tudor portraits.



The portraits of Queen Elizabeth I are my particular favorites.  The attention to detail and the embelleshmnet on the clothing and jewellery really capture the viewer, drawing you into the image.  These images leave you imagining what life could have really been like in those times past.
