Heidi and Jim's Wedding
8" x 10" x .75"
Oil with a palette knife of cradled artist board
The last in the series of commissioned "Sisters Wedding Paintings" and this one involved more than just the bride and groom as you can see. A challenge and yet very fun. All of these children are students of the bride who teaches theraputic horseback riding. The photo she sent me had a wonderful light coming down on them that I tried to capture in the painting. And the original photo did not include the groom. I had to add him by using a full length image of him from another photo.
A special Christmas gift from her sisters!
And, as usual, I wanted to show you how I started the painting, using the red/orange underpainting in acrylic.
