Bonaparte

Here is a new painting I did of young Napoléon at play in his Ajaccio family home, in 1776. I bet he liked sneaking in his dad's office to play with forbidden grown-up things!


And here are some sketches and colour studies.

Sadly, Napoleon's father's boots fit just as poorly as an adult. Great job, Dani! Tres magnifique!

Thanks so much, Grant!

Thanks, Michael! Sadly there are no little red sashes on the toys in the original. That was a (Photoshop) after thought.
