The Hollow Crown by Nachan The Hollow Crown by Nachan
Let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings;
How some have been deposed; some slain in war,
Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed;
Some poison'd by their wives: some sleeping kill'd;
All murder'd: for within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king
Keeps Death his court
-W. Shakespeare, Richard II

My Hollow Crown feels were like killing me, so I did a thing. But I'm not worthy, and it turned out a bit "meh"...
Btwww. Tom Hiddleston as Henry V in BBC serie The Hollow Crown, and some blood, which I enjoy to paint I have to confess.

Wonderful mix of controlled pencil lines, and the looser water colour elements.

I looooove that quote to death and I havenīt seen the movie - yet!!! - and I like what you did here! The picture fits the quote and of course the title and the whole theme very well! I love drawing blood, too :D Itīs morbid, but somehow itīs quite... lovely.
I like that you did him in pencil and then added only splashes of paint.

The quote is from Richard II not Henry V actually, but it fits perfectly the whole historical circle of Shakespeare's tragedies!<3 I reccomend you to watch the BBC serie, it is amazing!
haha, yeah, blood is pretty cute to paint, lol!XD

Yes it does! I loved it in the trailer for "The Hollow Crown" and know it by heart since. Plus the additional lines at the end that werenīt in the trailer... "Throw away respect, tradition, form and ceremonious duty, For you have but mistook me all this while: I live with bread like you, feel want, taste grief, need friends: subjected thus, How can you say to me I am a king?"
But of course we know a very famous quote of Henry V, too, because of Sherlock Holmes XD
I will watch it, definitely! The actors are superb!

Looking forward to all of their performances!
