Jacobean Pocahontas sketch by suburbanbeatnik Jacobean Pocahontas sketch by suburbanbeatnik
Preparatory sketch for a Pocahontas painting, which hopefully I'll be able to do sooner rather than later. She's wearing formal Jacobean court dress, circa 1616. And yes, necklines were really that low. Look: [link]

It's as if breasts were suddenly discovered, once Elizabeth died. Go figure. I'm sure Pocahontas, who has the build of Lynda Carter, would look quite fetching in a dress of this cut. Johns Smith and Rolfe wouldn't know what hit them.
