Tudor Queens 5 – Catherine Howard

by Kristina Gehrmann

Here&#39;s Queen 5 in my series of Tudor Queens :) "Catherine Howard married Henry VIII on 28 July 1540, almost immediately after the annulment of his marriage to Anne of Cleves was arranged. However, she was beheaded after less than two years of marriage to Henry on the grounds of treason for committing adultery while married to the King." (quoted from Wikipedia) Since she met the same fate as Anne Boleyn, I painted her being haunted or chased by Anne&#39;s ghost. Perhaps you&#39;ve heard stories about sightings of the ghost of Anne Boleyn? Her Wikipedia article cites a few. I don&#39;t believe in ghosts, but I believe in making paintings spooky :D And I hate painting buildings. It&#39;s the most tedious and boring task there is, at least for me. :/ The painted Hampton Court in the background was really an exercise in stamina. Time: about 10-20h Medium: Photoshop + Wacom tablet 100% hand painted with love by yours truly! <br> © Kristina Gehrmann <br> <a href="http://www.mondhase.de">My website</a> <br><br> <a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kristina-Gehrmann-Illustration/217959828256642">Follow me on Facebook =)</a> <br><br> <a href="http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=114866&page=17">My sketchbook on Conceptart.org</a><br><br>
