    'Royal Love'

    140 x 140 cm, acrylic on canvas

     

    McDonald began painting 'Royal Love' in Eaton Square, London in the late spring of 2016.  The artwork was later moved to the Royal Lodge, Great Windsor Park to be completed by McDonald with HRH Princess Beatrice, HRH Princess Eugenie and Sarah, Duchess of York.

     

    The artist asked the members of the British royal family how the painting made them feel and to place their spontaneous thoughts on the canvas using paint markers and brushes.
