This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Empress Isabel of Portugal designed from a painting by Titian shows Empress Isabella dressed in royal finery with beauty and grace in her facial expressions.  The Empress suffered an untimely death which caught her husband Charles V by surprise because he realized he did not have a portrait of his wife.  The original painting was brought to light which showed her dressed in black, but Charles did not like it as he said it did not resemble his wife.  Therefore, he commissioned Titian to paint from memory what the Empress looked like.  He was able to find a suitable model which helped, and he came up with this beautiful representation that greatly resembled the Empress.  Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
