The lack of hands in this drapery study for Edward III strongly suggests that Brown was working from a lay figure. He has included the outlines of the side of the throne and the figure of a child on the right. In the final painting his cloak has a chest fastening, and instead of having his hands in his lap he holds a cloth in one hand and the edge of the throne in the other.
