This iteration of King William I have done in a far more ' Kingly' pose than the triumphalist rearing horse with wounded soldiers around him. although I like that vignette this is more understated.
I use the colour scheme of another grand painting of the man. He is wearing a rich yellow coat, red English sash and this time I spent much longer on the face than the previous rush job.
I have used the King James horse from WLOA19.
The Horse furniture contrasts well with the black horse and yellow coat. I like this version of the King much better than my original, perhaps because I took some time considering the piece in a different light.

I painted a map of Ireland which he is gambling all to win and mounted it on the loose drum from pack WLOA930.
