What I find interesting is that,  technically, she wasn't ACTUALLY a virgin. Just never married.

I considered painting a version of Cate wearing that neck frilly thing. Turned it down as there is a staggering amount of detail in it. I think you've done a fantastic job of capturing the form and structure of it and the shadows are brilliant.

That's fantastic!!! I love the details!

"The Virgin Queen" always reminds me of the Tenth Doctor of the show Doctor Who. XD

When I see or hear the words ''The Virgin Queen'', I think of the Sopor Aeternus song with the same name, even if I know it was the nickname of one of the past queens of great Britain. :iconcerealguyplz:

Awesome! I agree, Cate Blanchett is fantastic. Great job...this is one of the coolest watercolors I've seen. I thought it was acrylic in the thumbnail.

Elizabeth's unmarried status inspired a cult of virginity. In poetry and portraiture, she was depicted as a virgin or a goddess or both, not as a normal woman.
