When studying Elizabethan portraits I have noticed a number of reoccurring themes that I believe to be identifiable characteristics from this era.
- · Colour – Deep red, strawberry blondes and different variations of these colours.
- · Texture – Frizzy, thick and very small ringlets of curls.
- · Shape – Often circular or in heart shapes, with a thick structure and extremely high hairline.
Adornments – Plenty of pearls, crowns, ribbons,
bonnets or small hats.
