HM The Queen

122 x 96 cm (48 x 38 ins)
Egg tempera

Antony Williams trained at Farnham College of Art and Portsmouth University in the UK. He works almost exclusively in egg tempera which can be a painstaking and exacting medium, but which allows him to express a deep feeling about the look of the world. All of his work is based on direct and intense observation, where every surface detail is given almost equal and constant consideration.

Antony Williams on painting H.M The Queen:

‘My approach to painting The Queen was to paint Her Majesty in the same way that I would tackle any other portrait, in working from intense observation of the subject, which can often produce as a result a heightened sense of realism.’
