Edward The Black Prince by dashinvaine Edward The Black Prince by dashinvaine
A drawing of Edward Prince of Wales, known as the Black Prince, 1330-1376.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward,_...

Because my gallery is needing some testosterone. Also because my hometown (Princes Risborough) is named after him, due to his holding the local manor. His main base was the Berkhamsted castle, which isn't far away, now in ruins. He is best known for taking a leading part in some major English victories in France, including the battles of Crecy and Poitiers, and the capture of Calais. He was a founder of the chivalric Order of the Garter. He also led a devastating raid (chevauchee) in the south of France, which included a sack of the city of Carcassonne.

 You have caught Edward of Woodstock very well; I would be interested in seeing his expression under that helmet!

Wonderful shading and detail!  You captured the spirit of the Middle Ages as we often dream of them while also maintaining excellent technical accuracy.  I like the posture of both the horse and Edward.

Yes, the site of his manor house (which also had a stud farm) is now a lovely carpark...

What a waste of heritage!  That would have been a great set of ruins to visit and study.
