Historical Portrait: Robert Gascoyne-Cecil (1861)

Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury (1861),  acrylic goauche & ink on panel,  (5" x 7"),  2014

The original of this historical portrait was a black and white engraving by William Holl, so I had to improvise on the colours.
My kids love his beard.
He kinda looks like a cool bad-ass bearded man with a "don't f*** with me" attitude.
I love how his eye turned out.
