It`s day 3 of the Queen Victoria Long Weekend! Sorry I didn`t post earlier...it`s been a scorching hot day here in Montreal and we`ve been soaking up the sun and Barbecuing and feasting!
Today`s post is mainly about Victoria and Albert`s love of the Arts. It`s no secret that the Royal couple indulged in the arts; whether it was music, poetry, painting or the theatre.
This month, I came across a copy of the magazine, Roylty (which I love!) And found a whole section on Victoria`s love of the arts..Notice the black circled section on the right for the title..
So, I scanned a few of the photos for you. Here`s one of Victoria`s own self portrait (she loved to draw and sketch- she was actually pretty good) Check it out:
This next one is a portrait of Prince Albert (what a distinguished and classy guy- my opinion!)
And this last one was Albert`s favourite painting of Victoria (and I don`t blame him!) Look at how deliciously gorgeous she was!
And now, here`s my own humble attempt at interpreting the above fabulous portrait.(I just love Victoria- and had to draw her:)
And guess what! My honey bunch of a daughter, Sophia (you remember her- the one who loves history just like her mommy?) Well, she attempted to draw Victoria as well! I find she`s actually quite good (Proud mommy- can you tell?)
