A spouse for the Erzherzog

It was high time the Erzherzog got himself a spouse;
the setup of this painting is taken from one of madam
Henriette Alexandrine Friederike Wilhelmine Prinzessin von Nassau-Weilburg, who in 1815 was married to our Erzherzog Karl.
I used a more familiar head, though.

This portrait is made on masonite, again coated with some white layer which I sanded a bit, to increase adhesion of the acrylic paint. It is done in acrylics. This is the same size as the last posted portrait, 40 by 50 centimeters.
