Charles unveiled a new portrait today:

https://www.msn.com/en-us...ingham-palace/ar-BB1mnKkA

I don't like it much.  Crap



Not a good photo of the portrait.  I love it.  He has gotten the face and eyes perfectly.  Itís him.


The face is excellent.  I think the red-on-red is a little jarring. It does give a lively effect though - like the subject just then stopped moving.

I think it's awful, it looks like he's floating in a pool of blood. It made me gasp when I saw it. Secret

Undeniable skill but almost haunting.

What is the significance of the butterfly?

I read somewhere that it's to allude to Charles' love of nature.

I'm clearly not an artist because this makes no sense to me. The red is baffling.

Jonathan Yeo is known for this sort of work, this is exactly what anyone who knew about him would expect. The portrait was commissioned when Charles was still Prince of Wales, I think no one would have planned this to be the first portrait of him finished in his reign but there isn't much that can be done about that once it is started.

Personally, I do prefer Yeo's portraits of Philip and Camilla

I donít mind those. I donít even mind the way he did Charles. Itís just the red overlay thatís so jarring.

I agree with you.

Once Charles goes, I think we wonít see the weekly church services anymore. Instead, we will see the Christmas and Easter walks and thatís it.


Funny though,  Charles always said he wanted to be "defender of faiths" but now he seems to stick to the "defender of the faith", which was what the late Queen was.

He head stands out but his body seems to not be defined. Looks a bit odd.

Does anybody else think it looks more like Ian McKellan? If I didnít know who it was supposed to be, Charles might have been my second or third guess.

It was a nice sentiment but also honestly quite naive to think he could change the ties between the crown and the English church. TBH I donít think he expected that to be a real thing happening.

I think Charles has an actual inclination toward either Greek or Russian Orthodoxy. I know he has done some retreats on Mt. Athos, which is an Orthodox monastery so strict that no females of any kind -- including animals-- are allowed. And he did pick out a really wonderful Orthodox-influenced piece by Tavener for Diana's funeral recessional.  So, I think he is a serious believer way beyond the occasional Christmas and Easter church appearance. And perhaps his brush with serious illness may have given him intimations of mortality and heightened his embrace of his faith.

I believe he was referring to other faiths than Christianity when he said that.
